I think this mailing is a little unclear. The image of the "Ho Jo" on the cover of Veitch's book is part of the book as published, every copy has it (see for example the complete scan of the New York Public Library copy at the Hathi Trust http://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=nyp.33433000217541;view=1up;seq=1  and I am not clear why the librarian thinks that her copy is the author's "personal copy" when the book-plate reproduced is that probably belonging to Major-General C.B. Lucie-Smith of The Acacias, Worthing U.K. who was a noted botanist.
