12mo. 79 (1) pp. Stiff wraps with attached illustrated dust wrappers. Work on bookplates in Soviet Russia. As the publisher's foreword says, "[n]owhere in the world are there so many libraries as in the Soviet Union. (.) The book, man's best friend, has gained a place of honour in every Soviet home; it is cherished and taken care of. Thence arises the necessity for some sign showing the owner's home. Nowadays, the most suitable way of marking a book is an artistic book-plate, which both shows whom the book belongs to, and, at the same time, serves as decoration." (p. 11) Illustrated with reprints of many book plates. With preface, biographical information on book plates' owners and list of reproductions. Minor age wear and creasing to dust wrapper, which is attached at spine. Minor browning throughout, especially at endpapers. In English, Estonian, German, and Russian. Very good condition.
