Abstract

Ink stamps in books can be traced as far back to the sixteenth century. And while rubber has been used for stamps since the nineteenth century, many before that were from engraved metal or wood, or pieced together type. They are effective provenance markers, especially if a full name and date is included. Again, identification can be tricky. The circular stamp with a ‘G’ and an Earl’s coronet on this title-page belongs to Frederick North, 5th Earl of Guildford, who, as revealed in cabinet 3, also had a bookplate. About 1894, administrators at Selwyn Theological College added the purple Shoults stamp to this book.
