Light scuffs and fading to the boards; the spine leather is dry and chipped on the edges and head and tail of the spine, with a 2.5 cm section of loss near the head.

From the prospectus: “This book, which began as a modest memorial tribute to Louise E. Winterburn, for ten years president of the California Bookplate Society, has developed into a comprehensive catalogue of all the Royal Bookplates in her collection, now magnificently housed in the Rare Book Room of the Library of the San Francisco College for Women. It is generally conceded that her acquisition of royal bookplates exceeded that of any other collector in the United States and certainly this catalogue of one hundred and eighty-one items bears witness to her undaunted spirit.”
