A bookplate with an interesting history…..

Ephemera 1 6

 

After a bit of digging on Ancestry, I discovered that this bookplate was in the name of Edward Temple L Gurdon, born 1896, died in Suffolk, after a distinguished military career (ending as a Major General) in 1959.

It shows no sign of being soaked off a book – so how did it end up on eBay?
