Bookplates of Miss Hannah Stamford of Linley Wood, Talke, Staffordshire, England


The above bookplate with 179 is an early version.  The later version incorporated the Caldwell deer.  Both versions have been found in books from the Linley Wood family library and in some cases also have the bookplate of her niece Anne Marsh Caldwell.

Books with this bookplate belonging to Hannah Stamford were in the Linley Wood library for over 100 years.  Many of these 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 (This email address is being protected from spambots.
