Spielmann by C. Gavin Duffy, Nice, Jan, 1898. Sir Duffy migrated from Ireland to Melbourne Australia and quickly moving into the Victorian parliament and eventually Premier. Duffy was more of a political reformist than what the Melbournians were expecting. One of his first bills was to have suffrage for all men of voting age in Victoria not just the land owners. The bookplate is from Marion Hary Spielmann who was the editor of the Magaine of Art and the The Connoisseur. One presumes that they were friends due to Duffy's original editorship of The Nation and Spielmann's magazines for lively debate. (ADBD Vol. 4). Bookseller Inventory #
