 Dear Lew,

A Happy New Year to you!

Do you know who designed Harry Bache Smith's bookplate?  His initials might be either A. G. or A. C.  and it looks like it was printed in 1929.  Attached are two images.  

best,
Jerry

Dear Mr. Jaffe

I came across your blog about Californian bookplate artists.

I am a bookplate collector and historian of science from Argentina, I am looking for a bookplate used by the chemist and historian of science Ladislao Reti.
His library was sold by the legendary Californian bookdealer Zeitlin in the nineties.
 There is a chance some books from his library may pop up in California.
Can you or one of your readers assist me in obtaining this bookplate ?
Thanks,
Roberto A. Ferrari
