Ex-Libris / Bookplates

Un ex-libris (du latin ex libris meis, « faisant partie de mes livres ») désigne en bibliophilie une gravure personnalisée qu'un collectionneur colle sur le contreplat (l'intérieur de la couverture) ou sur la page de garde de ses livres, comme marque d'appartenance. // A bookplate, also known as ex-librīs (Latin, "from the books of..."), is usually a small print or decorative label pasted into a book, often on the inside front cover, to indicate its owner.
