Two bookplates Amy did for family members

          Elizabeth Marion Sacker bookplate       

                                                                                                                                                                       Detail of Sacker's monogram   

This bookplate, designed by Amy Sacker for her sister, presumably around 1900, is presented here thanks to Fran Rogers, the granddaughter of Elizabeth Sacker, and thus Amy Sacker's grand-niece.   My deep thanks to her !  Below we see the bookplate, designed much later, for Elizabeth's son and Fran's father.

            Albert Arthur Chambers bookplate    Albert Chambers, a Bishop in the Episcopal Church, presided over Amy's funeral in 1965.  Full of religious symbols including, I believe, the four evangelists, the bookplate seems not to have a monogram.  This bookplate was probably designed in the 1930's or 1940's.
