The Irene Dwen Pace Collection
If Irene Dwen Pace collected books half as aggressively as she collected her own bookplates, she had a sizable library. Perhaps due to the travel which inevitably accompanied her husband’s military career, she met many artists throughout her life. She seems to have been unable to resist asking them to design bookplates for her and her family. A collection of at least some of them has made its way to our library.
