The ink drawing for this plate was previously dated ca 1930, but a letter dated 1 November 1951, and enclosing the printed bookplate (from Clyde Taylor to David H Graham), says "I send you a few copies of our new bookplate, drawn to our own design by James Berry" (leter housed at BOOKPLATES-Graham-H-Turnbull-1951-01). This suggests the bookplate was made in 1951, although it is possible that it was a 1951 re-issue.
