The essence of a bookplate is that it should be an artistic thing, a source of pleasure to the beholder, and hold a personal note that pronounces the ownership of the book. It is simply a well-bred way of saying 'This is my book'.
— Haldane Macfall

 Now the simple fact is that bookplates belong to books, and anything that has to do with books will assuredly charm cultivated minds until time shall be no more.
— Edward Almack, Bookplates
