Description

Bookplates

A selection of bookplates and bookseller tickets collected by Neil Swift (1890-1960), a bookseller from Footscray. This collection includes Australian and New Zealand bookseller tickets, plus various bookplates combined in an album using a Sands McDougall "Returns" ledger.

A bookplate is a small print or decorative label added to a book, usually the inside front cover, to indicate the book's owner. 

In comparison, simple typographical bookplates are termed "booklabels".

Bookplates typically bear a name, motto, device, coat-of-arms, or any motif that relates to the owner of the book. The name of the owner usually follows an inscription such as "from the books of..." or "from the library of...", or in Latin, ex libris....
