Stephen Whitney Phoenix - Bookplate (Ex Libris)

Title   Stephen Whitney Phoenix - Bookplate (Ex Libris)

Book Condition   Very Good

Seller ID   1616

Stephen Whitney Phoenix, no designer, nd, 7.9 by 10.5 cm, unused, very good with some light wrinkles. The shield contains an image of a phoenix, of course. Another variant of this plate reads, “Columbia University in the City of New York,” above the shield – most certainly the version attached to his bequests. Phoenix (1839-1881) was a New York lawyer and avid collector of books and prints. Three-thousand of his drawings and prints, as well as his general library of books, are held at Columbia. He left his herbarium to the American Museum of Natural History, and his books relating to heraldry and genealogy are held by the New York Historical Society. A73-16

Price = 16.00 USD
