About this title


First published in 1891, this vintage book contains a detailed handbook for collectors of French ex libris ? or, bookplates. A bookplate is generally a small illustration or decorative label inserted into a book, normally on the inside front cover. Originally, it was used to indicate its owner. This volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in bookplates, and it is not to be missed by the discerning collector. Contents include: ?Identification and Classification?, ?A Few Notes on French Heraldry?, ?French Ex-Libris from 1572 to 1650?, ?French Ex-Libris from 1650 to 1700?, ?French Ex-Libris from 1700 to 1798?, ?The First Republic?, ?The First Empire?, ?Modern Ex-Libris?, ?The Frontier Provinces?, ?Ecclesiastical?, ?Book-Plates of some Famous Men?, ?Canting Arms and Punning Plates?, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive.
