New Zealand Book-Plates. Illustrated History & Bibliography

Wellington, The Beltane Book Bureau, 1948.

Octavo, [iv], 8 pages with illustrations of 11 bookplates.

Wrappers; minimal foxing (perhaps small marks from a rusty paperclip or similar); an excellent copy.

NZ Collectors' Monographs Number 4; this unsigned edition was limited to 500 copies. Loosely inserted is a 1950 typed letter signed by David H. Graham, Lower Hutt, explaining the origins of an accompanying leaflet, 'Ex Libris. A Note describing the Bookplate of David H. Graham'. The letter is uncomplimentary about the bookplate, and deservedly so: an example is included in the package. Provenance: Edward Edgar Pescott (1872-1954), horticulturalist, naturalist, author and book-collector (the above letter is addressed to him).
