Dear Ozmarty Thank you for posting this link, great reference website. Best wishes - Lisa.
I'm sorry to have left it so long, but I will now post the final chapter of this story. The Bookplate Society have been a real inspiration and I was very proud to receive Volume 10 Number 1 Spring ...

Dear Solver I am absolutely astounded by your in depth research. You have not only solved the mystery, but have now gone far beyond! To link the bookplate to the Isle of Wight is unbelievable. ...
