Book Plate of
Arthur Cuthbert Marsh
1786?-1849
of Eastbury Park, Hertfordshire.

Si bene statuas nil metuas
If you live uprightly you need not fear

Some books with this bookplate ended up in the Linley Wood library after having been inherited by Maj Gen Frederick Crofton Heath-Caldwell.  Many of the Linley Wood library books were distributed among family members in 1913 but the majority were dispersed in 1949 when Capt CH Heath-Caldwell sold the Linley Wood estate.  At this time some of the more valuable books were sent for auction at Sothebys however the majority were sold at the auction of the contents of the house which was held at Linley Wood.  I have over the years been able to buy back a number of these books which have come up for sale on the internet.  If you have any books with this bookplate I would be very pleased to hear from you (jj@jjhc.info).
