Immediate Source of Acquisition
The Yale Bookplate Collection was formerly housed in Sterling Memorial Library. The collection was incorporated into the Arts of the Book Collection in 1984 and then moved to the Seeley G. Mudd Library in 1990. In 2011 it was transferred to the Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library.
Organized into three series and one addition: I. Bookplates - Individuals. II. Bookplates - Organizations, Institutions, and Businesses. III. Bookplates - Artists; 2015 Addition.
The arrangement preserves the original alphabetical ordering by which special letters and those with diacritical marks were sorted at the end of the alphabet. Any correspondence or ephemeral materials relating to a specific bookplate are filed together with the bookplate.
