Description

This bookplate is part of the collection assembled by Elizabeth Mast Hyatt during the 1920s and 1930s in honor of famed opera and concert singer Annie Louise Cary (1841-1921) who was born in the town of Wayne.

Hyatt, a summer resident of Wayne, was involved in planning for a new library, which was dedicated in 1939 as the Cary Memorial Library. The bookplate collection was subsequently donated to the library's holdings.

Helen Barnhart was a collector of bookplates, and J.W. Jameson was a well-known bookplate artist and engraver.
