George Gebner Schreiber bookplate, 1928

Contributed by Cary Memorial Library in Wayne

Description

Noted artist Rockwell Kent created this bookplate for George Schreiber. The illustration shows items of particular interest to the owner, which was often the case in bookplate design.

Kent (1882-1971) was known for his paintings and writings, as well as the 160-plus bookplates he designed. Early in his career, he spent summers painting on Monhegan Island and became known as a premier American modernist.

Elizabeth Mast Hyatt amassed a large collection of bookplates in honor of famed opera singer Annie Louise Cary (1841-1921), who was born in Wayne, and for whom the present library is named.
