This bookstore, operated by the heirs of Arthur Auguste Boehne, used a different kind of "bookplate," not an ex libris meant to identify the owner of a book but a label designed to advertise the bookstore where it was purchased. Other examples of these plates, perhaps more properly called "stationers' marks" are included in the bookplate collection. Many other examples of 19th- and 20th-century stationers marks can be found pasted into the front of the hundreds of ledgers that form part of the New Orleans City Archives.
