From the introduction: “This volume is merely an attempt to bring together, under one cover, information concerning Indiana bookplates and their makers, with some discursive commentary in various phases of the art life of the state, and biographical data of a necessarily limited character, the whole, if it should have any interest, to be of more or less value as a book of reference to the genera; Indiana public and an ex libris record to the collector.” Beautifully produced with one-hundred and ten illustrations, including six tip-ins (five of which are in color) and two engravings. Fuller, p.111. First Edition.
