  1. Evan Keidel Says:

    I am not really requesting any materials from this collection, but this is a vast collection of bookplates and I have found a bookplate buried on my property and I am just looking for someone who could possibly tell me something about this plate or where it came from, it was dug up in Midland Michigan and the name on the plate is Carl Reynolds, where would be a good place to research this plate.

    Thanks, Evan

  2. Roland Goodbody Says:

    Hello Evan.

    I have looked through about 20 or 25 of the books on the history of bookplates that we have in our bookplate collection and have not found any reference to the name Carl Reynolds, I´m afraid. But I know nothing about bookplates myself, being an archivist first and foremost, rather than a collector. I think your best bet might be to get in touch with Lewis Jaffe, who has collected bookplates for over 30 years. He has a blog ( .

  3. Anthony Pincott Says:

    Dear Librarian – Concerning the bookplate of Dr Hugh Giffen McKinney (1869-1945) by John Williams, I have looked at my print of the plate and am not convinced that your date of 1901 is correct. Please will you check this with a strong magnifying glass and advise me of your findings. With thanks, Anthony Pincott, The Bookplate Society, London N1.

  4. Roland Goodbody Says:

    Dear Anthony,

    I did as you suggested – and you are quite correct that 1901 is not the date on the bookplate itself. It is very hard to read with the naked eye, but when I scanned it and viewed it at actual pixel size, it is quite clearly 1897. The 1901 date seems to have come from Lewis Stark, the collector, who wrote on the sleeve containing the bookplate “John Williams 1901.”

    Thank you for pointing this out. I will correct the finding aid.
