For as long as either manuscript or printed books have been collected into private and institutional libraries, some means of labeling them with an owner’s name has been sought. Bookplates are one means which have survived the test of time: they provide a versatile little canvas into which a book’s owner can project much of his or her self-image through carefully chosen quotations, mottoes, or illustrations.
Outside the Shadow of Rembrandt: Selected 17th Century Prints from the Famulener and Wilson Collections
