Who is Harold Lindley ?
I am often asked if I have a favorite bookplate and no one item comes to mind as I have many that give me a great deal of pleasure. The bookplate for Harold Lindley would;however, be near the top of the list.
Here is what I assume :He was under ten years of age in the 1920s or thirties and probably lived in America or England.
Prior to checking Google I had hoped to find something like this: Mr Harold Lindley, a retired pilot started reading about airplanes when he was ten years old and even created his own bookplate.-- No Such Luck.
What I did find among the listings was a deceased minister and a deceased physician who might have been the young book enthusiast.Perhaps I will never find out but hope springs eternal.
found your blog following through a search
got myself back to your initial posts . . .
this would be just my choice (and I don't own the plate), bugger!
I have a year to be where you are currently book-plate-ing
