There is a “Specimen – Imperfect” stamp on the verso of the frontis to Vol. 1 No. 1. Fowler was the longtime Secretary-Treasurer of the American Bookplate Society and this periodical was one in a long line of ABS publications. It was Fowler’s attempt at a more literary bookplate journal, featuring bookplate news and profiles of bookplate artists, as well as more general bibliographic information. During its second volume it became the official organ of the ABS, and soon after the editorship was taken over by Elisabeth Miller. After only three volumes, The Miscellany was superseded by the Book-Plate Booklet, but despite the short run it contained a wealth of information. Fuller, p. 76.
