This Week in Bookplates 9/3/2017

I am going to attend the fourth annual Brooklyn book show.( Sept 8-10)
If you are in or near Brooklyn and have bookplates for sale or trade please send me an email.

This is an exceptionally well run show  and at least two dealers  Tom Boss and Richard Thorner will be bringing bookplates.
Here is their contact information.

Here is a link with detailed information about the show


Fellow Collector Anthony Pincott sent me this information about the Emma Toedteberg Collection at the Brooklyn Historical Society.

With a little advance planning you can go to the show and visit the  Historical Society also.
Call Number: 2012.004
Extent: 23.5 Linear feet, in 48 manuscript boxes.
The Emma Toedteberg Bookplate collection, spanning from 1701 to 1982, was the bookplate collection of long-time Brooklyn Historical Society (BHS) librarian Emma Toedteberg (1856-1936). The collection was originally created by Miss Toedteberg’s father, Augustus Toedteberg (1824-1909), and later expanded by BHS librarians. The present collection numbers over 7,000 bookplates ranging from the eighteenth to the twentieth century, including armorial, heraldic and presentation bookplates of individuals and institutions. Works of numerous engravers are represented such as Edwin Davis French, Charles W. Sherborn and John W. Evans.

Fellow collector Luigi Bergomi  has listed over two hundred bookplates on Ebay this week.. His seller name is Olindo.

To be continued on Monday 9/4
