This is from a collection of bookplates rescued from a badly damaged two volume 1888 first edition set entitled "History Of Essex County Massachusetts, With Biographical Sketches of Many of its Pioneers And Prominent Men." By D. Hamilton Hurd.
For provenance, you will receive a copy of the title page. We also leave the edge untrimmed, which provides origin provenance.
The approximate entire bookplate size is 7.5 x 10.5 inches or 19 x 27 cm. The backside, or verso, is blank.
Very good. Small tear and bump on the bottom. See images for condition, some have spots, foxing, tears, etc.
