Canadian bookplate collection

Canadian bookplate collection Dates of creation: [189-]-1996 Physical description: 140 bookplates Administrative history: n/a Scope and content: The collection consists of bookplates designed by Canadian artists. Physical arrangement follows original order, with an alphabetical listing by artist. Custodial history: The collection contains bookplates accumulated by Sybille Pantazzi during her administration of the AGO library. The bulk of the collection came from a 1969 purchase of 56 bookplates tipped onto kraft paper. There is no correspondence in the file to suggest who put together this collection. In February 1975, Sybille Pantazzi transferred 13 bookplates from the Canadian Painters and Etchers file that were originally inserted in a letter from Stanley Harrod in 1917. A 1978 ‘List of additional bookplates’ corresponds to 24 bookplates; these were probably collected by her from various sources. A letter of 1976 from Julia [Jarvis] refers to the gift of a bookplate on this list. In addition, there were several envelopes each containing a few bookplates, with no notes as to the source. Sybille Pantazzi’s administrative file includes her research notes, taken from published sources, correspondence with a donor and researcher, and a group of photocopied bookplates, most from her own collection, one from the AGO Library. Additional bookplates continue to be added to the collection by current Library staff. Notes: Immediate source of acquisition: Various sources. Restrictions on access: Open. Access to Special Collections is by appointment only. Please contact the reference desk for more information. Terms governing use and reproduction / publication: Various copyright holders. It is the researcher’s responsibility to obtain permission to publish any part of the collection. Accruals: Further accruals are expected. Related material: Sybille Pantazzi’s research notes on this collection are filed with her papers. General note: This finding aid current to January 2004.
