Mystery-related bookplates.

Lewis Jaffe, on his blog Confessions of a Bookplate Junkie, has a few mystery-related ones posted:

• E. V. and Laura Vanderstoep's bookplates with fingerprints

• S. Davis Levin's Conan Doyle Collection

• Sherlock Holmes-related bookplates here and here from bookseller-publisher Helan Halbach

• One for Muriel Clark Corby with a raven, which seems Poe-inspired to me.

• Arthur Conan Doyle's bookplate

• H. P. Lovecraft's bookplate

• Erle Stanley Gardner bookplates

And there's also the "Insane Department" at Philadelphia Hospital.

As I'm a Noel Coward fan, be sure to check out Sir Noel's bookplate.
