Description


Rare original bookplate engraved by Paul Revere for John Gardiner of Gardiner's Island, 3.25 x 4.25, featuring his coat of arms: the image features a heavily decorated Chippendale-style border with mantling, leaves, and flowers surrounding a crest. The central image features three powder horns with clovers divided by a chevron. At the helm is a bent arm in armor with a bare hand holding what appears to be a quill. In fine condition. Accompanied by a limited edition book entitled "Paul Revere's Bookplate for John Gardiner of Gardiner's Island," published by Boss Books in 2013, which briefly describes the history of these bookplates and notes that about 40 are known; it also features tipped in reproductions of several Revere bookplates. Also includes Paul Revere's Engravings by Clarence S. Brigham, published by the American Antiquarian Society in 1954, signed and inscribed on the first free end page by Brigham; the large volume offers a short discussion of Revere's bookplates within the context of his broader engraving work.
