Philatelic Bookplates

The Confessions of a Bookplate Junkie recently featured pictures of philatelic bookplates from the libraries of collectors and stamp dealers.

Among them are bookplates that once graced the books and albums belonging to such notables as American Philatelic Society Hall of Famers John K. Tiffany and Harry Lindquist; philatelic writer Charles James Phillips; and George T. Turner, the former curator of philatelic holdings at The Smithsonian.

Shown above, a bookplate belonging to Pennsylvania stamp dealer Elmer R. Long.
