The Bookplate Society,. 2008. FIRST EDITION limited to 100 copies, numbered & signed by the author for private distribution, (+ 350 copies for The Bookplate Society). Folio, pp.128; over 260 illustrations & facsimiles throughout (16 in colour); new in laminated pictorial card covers. A well produced sequel to Dr Blatchly's earlier 'Suffolk and Norfolk Ex-Libris', essential reading for local collectors for the biographical notes alone, with three separate indexes of: place, owner, and artists, engravers & printers, which incorporate both works. The first 75 copies sold will include a tipped-in copy of the pictorial bookplate etched by Suffolk painter Anna Airy for Sir Harry Newton, sometime MP for Harwich. A discreet crest and baronet's helm fills the lower left corner but the main feature of unpicked apples presumably alludes to Sir Isaac, from whom no one can claim direct descent. A noted yachtsman and expert on Danish husbandry, Sir Harry succeeded his father the 1st baronet in 1921 and died thirty years later. (Book ref. 16179) £18.00
