  • Bookplate of Sir Samuel James Way Bart – Chief Justice c1910

    Bookplate of Sir Samuel James Way Bart – Chief Justice c1910

    An original woodcut bookplate, over 100 years old, of Sir Samuel James Way (1836-1916). 13cm by 9.5cm in very good condition.

    Sir Samuel was Chief Justice of South Australia and Lieutenant Governor. He was invited to the Privy Council but had to give it up partly due to confusion as to who was to pay him. He was knighted in 1899 so we are pretty sure this bookplate was designed for him late in life.

    Postage will be reduced to cost on final billing.

  • Original Norman Lindsay Bookplate  –  Ex Libris Colin B Berckelman

    Original Norman Lindsay Bookplate – Ex Libris Colin B Berckelman

    A finely executed bookplate by Norman Lindsay (1879-1969) for the bibliophile Colin Blake Berckelman (1807-1965). 12cm by 10,5cm on thick wove paper … very clean.

    Norman Lindsay needs no introduction except to say that few know he was pretty handy with his fists as well as the brush, pen and etching tool.

    Colin Berckelman was really quite something also. He was lucky to be the agent in NSW for large brass padlocks made by Jackson’s of Tasmania … and had all the contracts that could be had with prisons and railways. He attended his office in the morning to deal with overnight orders and was usually done by 10am. He spent the rest of the day, at auctions collecting all sorts of things … his main interest being books, bookplates, erotica etc … most of his bookplates were of naked women … he was known to quip “I like them that way”.
