Bookplate of George Marsh (1722-1800) Commissioner of the Navy. 

Sibene Statuas Nil Metuas. 
If you live uprightly you need not fear.

 

 

Books noted with this bookplate include the following:

Bible belonging to Francis Marsh (from shipwreck), 1641.
Chronicle of the Kings of England. By Richard Baker, 1660.
The Prince of Abissinia. A tale. By Samuel Johnson. 5th Edition. Printed for W. Strahan, J. Dodsley, and E. Johnston, London, 1775.

Some books with this bookplate ended up in the Linley Wood library after having been inherited by Maj Gen Frederick Crofton Heath-Caldwell.  Many of the Linley Wood library books were distributed among family members in 1913 but the majority were dispersed in 1949 when Capt CH Heath-Caldwell sold the Linley Wood estate.  At this time some of the more valuable books were sent for auction at Sothebys however the majority were sold at the auction of the contents of the house which was held at Linley Wood.  I have over the years been able to buy back a number of these books which have come up for sale on the internet.  If you have any books with this bookplate I would be very pleased to hear from you (This email address is being protected from spambots.
