Abstract

This book is a 75th Anniversary edition for the Auckland Ex Libris Society, which was established in Wellington in November 1930. It is still active in Auckland today, comprising a small group of devoted bookplate lovers and collectors. The page on display features a photograph of Timaru architect and bookplate designer, Percy Watts Rule (1889-1953), who designed Timaru’s coat of arms; the bookplate of New Zealand writer, Jane Mander (1877-1949) by Stephen Champ; and two bookplates for Warwick Lawrence: one by renowned Auckland bookplate artist, Hilda Wiseman, and the other by New Zealand artist, Charles Tole.
