Title: The Lincoln Crest and Monogram Album
Description: William S Lincoln, N.D.. Fourth Edition. Hardcover. An undated (early 20th Century) 4th edition hardcover, without dustwrapper, in decorative stamped boards with bright gilt lettering to front board which is rubbed to the top and bottom edge and rubbed/bumped to the corners. The decorative spine with bright gilt lettering is bumped/rubbed to the ends with some damage to each, and one torn page. About 2/3 of the decorative pre-printed pages have been filled with 295 carefully cut crests and monograms, of which 165 are military - mainly of British and Indian Army regiments - some of which are from Lincoln's pre-printed sheets, but many taken directly from correspondence. There are also 11 complete cards with military crests which have been pasted on blank facing pages. Although the book has no previous ownership writing, the space reserved for the personal monogram of the owner has been filled with a neatly cut example of the Scottish Mitchell family crest. William S Lincoln was one of the originators of stamp collecting and of particular interest is a contemporary catalogue bound into the back of the book which lists albums, stamps and sheets of monograms and crests for sale along with a photograph of their shop in London. A unique item. Carefully packaged and posted within 48 hours from our wee bookshop in Scotland.. Fair .
