This treasure of _A Treasury of Bookplates_ from Dover Publications is a feast for the eyes--A visual treat for artists and art lovers alike. Softcover book is approx. 8-1/2 x 11-1/4". 146 pages with 4 to 6 black & white images per page; totaling 761 illustrations. Includes bookplates from Germany, Great Britain, United States, France, Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands, Czechoslovakia, Soviet Union, Japan, Hungary and Spain. Some nudity, but tasteful (in my opinion). There are a mere five pages of text, the introduction. In the back of the book there is an A to Z index of the Artists.
