Historic California in Bookplates,

Talbot., Clare Ryan

Athens, Ohio: Ohio University Press, 1983. Green cloth hardcover with gilt stamped title and vignette of bookplate of Clare Ryan Talbot. 1983 reprint (the original was published in 1936). 287 pages with B&W illustrations of many of the bookplates discussed. This is an ex-library copy, please see the description below. However, it is also a presentation copy with a a presentation slip to a library, 'Presented in memory of Clare Ryan Talbot by Laurence J. Ryan,"'and also a hand-written presentation by Laurence Ryan: 'An addition to your library in memory of Clare Ryan Talbot, Laurence J. Ryan, Alameda, California, August 1985" WITH his bookplate attached (it is pictured, with a little history, on pp 7-9 of the book and the name Laurence Darby Ryan in the book illustration.) Laurence J. Ryan, owner of the actual bookplate in the book and presenter of the gift copy, was Clare Ryan Talbot's brother. The bad news: The recipient library added the usual stuff. So: there are some faint dark spots at the spine heel where the label was previously attached and a spot near the top edge where something has been removed that took a little of the surface of the material with it. A "please return" library label is still affixed to the front pastedown, a small label with tiny bibliographical detail is on the front free endpaper (and slightly over the presentation label), and something was removed from the bottom of that page - apparently tape, as there is some sticky residue and again, a little loss of surface material. I swear, libraries hate books! There is also considerable shelf-wear a long the bottom edge, worn through the fabric in some spots; and the spine corner tips are also worn. This damage isn't quite as bad as it sounds and someone with patience and knowledge could probably repair some of the damage. The interior of the book is quite clean aside from what I have mentioned (in fact, I wonder if anyone ever really read or used this volume). A pity to have such a splendid association result in damage to a lovely book. The text, of course, presents a lot of California literary and biblophile history along with the bookplates - it's a classic of its genre. BOOKS ON BOOKS 3304. Inscribed Association Copy. Reprint Edtion. Hard Cover. Good Condition (ex-library)/No Dust Jacket. Illus. by Bookplate Illustrations. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Books on Books.
