Ex Libris Collection by Franz von Bayros (26 images)













A bookplate (or book-plate, as it was commonly styled until the early 20th C.), 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”.
