One thought on “Conundrum of the Week: Unidentified Bookplate

  1. This is no great puzzle. The bookplate was created for one member of the North family then later the copper plate was adapted for use by another family member(s). The original probably corresponds to V.3018 in the Viner Collection of bookplates at the British Museum, for The Honble: Charles North Esqr: 1705. In its modified state, as depicted, it is F.22020 in the Franks Collection, but this is known with manuscript addition of either “R” or “Roger” as in V.3019 where “22” is added to show the year 1722.
