Overview

This catalogue, written in German, describes for the first time the outstanding collection of sixteenth-century German and Austrian bookplates in the British Museum, with over 500 catalogue entries and illustrations. Artists such as Albrecht Duerer and Lucas Cranach are represented. The different types of bookplate, including copies, reproductions using later printing techniques and new works in the style of earlier artists, are discussed in detail. The nineteenth-century fashion of collecting booksplates as works of art is also considered.
