Einstein, Milton I.D. & Max A. Goldstein
Reprint of the 1918 edition which was limited to 300 numbered copies. The first part (Coll. Marks), by Louis Fagan of the British Museum, first appeared in 1883 and contains 671 "marks" for book owners (individuals or institutions): Signatures, initials, monograms, stamps, stars, crosses, coats of arms, intertwined forms and "other marks and devices," all reproduced in facsimile. The accompanying list indicates, to the extent known, the collector or owner to whom the mark refers and gives information on the sale of the collection to which the mark pertains. Fagan identifies about three-fourths of the marks with regard to ownership, with auction information for perhaps one-half. With index. A following "supplement" lists fifty variants of the marks already reproduced. The last part ("new contributions") is an addition by the editors of this edition, Milton Einstein and Max Goldstein, and lists 205 additional marks, many of them from America (e.g. M. Cassatt, J.P. Morgan), following the format of part one, although a smaller portion of marks are identified.
