Provenance Party!

The Penn Provenance Project on Flickr has now received over 1,000,000 views!! Congratulations to everyone who struggled to read illegible inscriptions, identified bookplates and stamps and enriched Penn’s catalog records with detailed information about the former owners of our rare books.



If you haven’t visited yet, come take a look at some of our sets and begin identifying!

  1. Re unidentified bookplate M Ly C , I have this in a 4th edition of Edmund Burke’s reflections on the French Revolution dated 1794 . A pencilled note by the bookseller says the copy came from the library of Lord Clive , but if anyone can shed light on any of this please email me . Thanks .
