Cover Page
This month’s cover features a signed bookplate by Sara Eugenia Blake created for schoolteacher and cat fancier Mary Alice Ercolini. Blake (1886-1973) was a librarian at Tufts Medical and Dental Schools in Boston as well as an artist, etcher, bookplate designer, and collector. The bookplate is now held by the University of San Diego (USD) Copley Library’s Special Collections and is part of a collection of more than 4,500 bookplates donated by Berkeley Librarian Christine Price to the San Diego College for Women (part of USD) in 1966.
