Abstract

The pictorial devices in an armorial bookplate are usually applicable to one individual, or family. It is possible for a student of provenance (the history of previous ownership), to identify the owner, once the jargon and rules of heraldry are learnt. In Boutell’s classic book on heraldry, he offers a list of crowns and coronets that can appear in a bookplate. Spotting your ‘Baron’ or ‘Earl’ in the royal pecking-order becomes so much easier.
