REFERENCE LIBRARY ON BOOKPLATES
WITHIN A GRAPHIC ART/BIBLIOPHILE JOURNAL LOT
This collection of journals is from an avid bookplate collector. Each issue has something relevant to bookplates, book labels, stamps, etc.
Individually, these issues can be tricky to find, so take advantage of the effort made by the previous owner!
All of these journals have great articles for the bibliophile in addition to the articles or images of bookplates, of course.
