The Book Haven received a note from Jim Lewis (that’s all we know about him), who doesn’t see why we should stop a good thing.
“I came across your blog and have enjoyed your comments about bookplates. I have collected these little gems for years and I am attaching to this e-mail, four examples of a theme that I enjoy – books/reading/library. I especially like the mood of Old Europe found in the Charlotte Wamroth plate; a book-laden table next to the open window with a view of the town’s cathedral in the distance. And then there is Florence Baird’s plate showing little angels bringing books into her library, and demons removing them.”
I have to admit a certain fondness for the little cherubs bringing the books, and the demons taking them away – but what does it all mean?
Thank you Jim, and thank you Florence Baird, Charlotte Wamroth, harpsichordist Marie Hay, and Levi W. Eaton, who seems to have a sort of UFO portrayed on his carpet. Thank you, whoever you are!
