Bookplates not only help us to establish the provenance of books and collections, but they are also visual representations of an individual's or a family's identity. Bookplates were frequently designed and executed by well-known artists. Bookplates can also tell us about associations between artists and institutions or individuals as patrons and benefactors.
The Bookplate Collection was formed by selecting items with bookplates across general collections. There are 40 items in the collection ranging from mid-19th century to early 20th century. Material in English and French is present in the collection. The subject matter of the collection is predominantly religious and historical in nature.
The collection prefix before the call number is: Bookplate.
The collection is open.
