The Bookplates of Miss C. Helard and other related matters

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Authored and compiled by Colin R. Lattimore, this book is a wonderfully illustrated book examining the bookplates of Miss C. Helard and other related matters.

Mary Ellen Blanche Crookes (1870-1935) aka, Miss C. Helard, was the wife of Arthur Charles Fox-Davies, a noted Edwardian lawyer, author, and expert on heraldry. When the library of his estate came onto the market in the late 1970s, the author was able to acquire a substantial archive of material that, combined with other research into the history of this family, culminated in this impressive work.

As the author explains, C. Helard was 'born' in 1895 as the pseudonym that Crookes used for her heraldic drawings and bookplate designs. Why exactly she chose this name remains something of a mystery, but her portfolio of work as C. Helard was impressive.

The author has meticulously catalogued all known examples of her work, and has reproduced in superb quality many illustrations of her ex libris in this book.

It is believed this book was limited to an edition of 450 copies.

The book is still in its plastic wrapping which has torn slightly at the bottom right hand of the front cover. As it has never been read, it can be assumed to be in excellent condition throughout.
