ex libris, a few book plates I like


bookplate, also known as ex-librīs [Latin, "from the books of..."], is usually a small print or decorative label pasted into a book, often on the inside front cover, to indicate its owner. Simple typographical bookplates are termed "booklabels".

The earliest known marks of ownership of books or documents date from the reign of Amenophis III in Egypt (1391–1353 BCE).
