At the end of the 19th century Richard Evelyn Byrd, the father of Admiral Byrd commissioned Edwin Davis French to engrave an armorial bookplate for his library.
Several decades later his son Admiral Richard Evelyn Byrd took his father's bookplate to the New York firm of Demsey & Carroll to have an electrotype copy made for use in his own library. I am offering one of the bookplates from Admiral Byrd's library. It's dimensions are 3 inches wide by 3 1/2 inches high.
