I ran across this wonderful Franklin Delano Roosevelt bookplate on Facebook. Here he has woven in armorial refences (the roses into a design that is clearly armorial in inspiration. Sorry I can’t tell you more about teh bookplate

The anchor and stars are obviously based on FDR’s flag as Assistant Secretary of the Navy.  Maybe the bookplate dates from his tenure in that office, 1913-1920.

Brilliant, Joseph!  This makes perfect sense.  George, thanks for sharing this rare find.

one of the many reasons why i’m a huge fan of Facebook. i’ve seen so many heraldic things there from people all over the world…not to mention met many great people from all over with an interest in heraldry.

thanx for sharing George—it is nice. i agree with Joseph & Hassan that it makes sense to date to that time.

What I like best about this bookplate is that it combines the flag elements with the roses from his personal arms.

I found FDR’s armorial bookplate and have added that as well as a photo of TR’s to our article on the Roosevelts, http://americanheraldry.org/pages/index.php?n=President.Roosevelt

In addition, it turns out that MOMA in New York has a copy of Eleanor Roosevelt’s bookplate—also armorial, using the same version of the arms as the rest of the TR side of the family, in an oval cartouche.  Here it is:

Fascinating. I’d be very interested to know whether FDR made the change in the Roosevelt arms or if the change had been adopted earlier in his branch of the family to indicate they were of a cadet branch.
