Title: Bookplate and autograph of Augustin Blanchet...
1.25" x 2.25" bookplate reading "A. M. A. Blanchet, Eveque de Nesqualy". Nicely printed on blue paper with a decorative border. The bookplate is mounted onto the detached front board of an odd volume of a religious work by Wolfgang Muhlbauer. Blanchet was appointed Bishop of the new Diocese of Walla Walla in 1846 and served until 1879. He played an important role in the aftermath of the Whitman Massacre. He is among the most important missionary figures to work in the American west. The book itself is in poor condition, and is an ex- seminary library copy. Bookseller Inventory # 21869
