NotesA number of online sources suggest that the peerage indicated on this bookplate may be contrived. Another James G. J. Penderel Brodhurst (1859-1934) bookplate, containing a very similar coat of arms is also in the Rare Books and Special Collections Bookplate collection, identified by the number BP MUR SL P B763a. He is listed as an additional author for the novel, 'Lord Ormont and his Aminta' by George Meredith (1828-1909), which can be found in the UBC Library Catalogue.
