The sale has just concluded of a more contemporary bookplate, that of Sir Ian Gilmour Bt, later Baron Gilmour of Craigmillar. The bookplate is most probably from between 1977 when he succeeded to the baronetcy and 1992 when he was made a life peer. Lord Gilmour died in 2007. His son, David, is now the 4th baronet.

Arms: Quarterly 1st & 4th Azure three writing-pens palewise Argent (Gilmour) 2nd & 3rd Sable on a saltire Argent a crescent Gules (Little)

Crest: A dexter hand holding a scroll of paper within a garland of laurels proper.

Motto: Nil Penna Sed Usus (Not the pen but its use)
