Which Washington?

We have a charming and interesting little limited edition, 1927 book about bookplates selling tomorrow night on Ebay. It's called "Washington Bookplates" and I bought it at an auction a few weeks ago, thinking it was about George Washington's bookplates, or bookplates featuring him, or connected with him, or something like that... but no, it's about bookplates created for Washington-state artists for Washington-state bibliophiles. Well... rats! Not that there's anything wrong with that, it's just that I was expecting otherwise. So, we put it up on Ebay, with no reserve, and it will go to the highest bidder tomorrow. Click the Ebay auctions link to see the listing.

And next auction I will look at the books more carefully...
