The Bancroft Library bookplates, 1880 and 1963.

As Henry L. Oak prepared the library for shelving in its new library building, he carefully book- plated the entire collection to reflect its arrangement by document type and subject. In 1963, The Bancroft Library returned to the style of these original bookplates, a style which also reflects the silver plate now gracing the library’s gallery entrance--that once welcomed visitors to the Valencia Street library.
