Re: Bookplates

The late Ellen Shaffer told a class that A.S.W. Rosenbach would remove
bookplates of famous collectors from books that he knew he could sell
easily and paste them into books that he knew he would otherwise have
difficulty selling.  I should have said that the class was a seminar in
the history of books and printing at Columbia.  Unfortunately Ms. Shaffer
did not say what method Rosenbach used to remove the bookplates.  From
