The “Saunière Bookplate” of 1993

When the ‘Saunière Museum’ was re-opened on 1 July 1993 following its renovation a bookplate was displayed giving the false impression it had once belonged to Bérenger Saunière, when in fact it only served as decoration on the basis of the initials B.S.

The “Saunière bookplate” is from Henricus Madathanus (Adrian von Mynsicht, 1603-1638), Aureum Saeculum Redivivum (“The Golden Age Revived”, 1677 edition)
