quarto, 256pp. The British Museum holds the world's largest collection of bookplates, but only the British and American ex-libris have so far been published. This catalogue, written in German, describes, lists and reproduces over five hundred ex-libris from the outstanding collection of sixteenth-century German and Austrian bookplates in the Museum. The different types of bookplate, including copies, reproductions using later printing techniques and new works in the style of earlier artists, are discussed in detail. The nineteenth-century fashion of collecting bookplates as works of art is also considered. 570 b&w illustrations. [With] "The Bookplate Journal" New Series, Volume II, Number 2. Autumn, 2013. Out of the 72 pages of this issue, 38 pages are devoted to the English translation of Dr O’Dell’s introduction, accompanied by 43 illustrations of which 16 are full page, a number of which are in colour. These illustrations have been chosen to match references in the text. For these images they re-photographed the original exlibris in the British Museum. A second problem with the book is that images were reduced in size to fit four to a page. In the journal they have, where possible, shown items at actual size, except where the originals are larger than our page area (the journal measures 185x245mm). N° de réf. du libraire 12142
