Samuel Hollyer's Bookplates

A set of illustrations of several of Samuel Hollyer's bookplates are available here.

One of them is his own (with a sketch of his wife at the foot) while another is of his second wife.

Samuel Hollyer (1826-1919) was born in London but emigrated to the USa and became a prominent engraver.
