    Surely I’m not the only one thinking Dr. Manhattan. Was/is it common for people to mark their books, or is that something only the famous do?

      I’ve bought quite a  few, not always so old books which had them as recently as a couple of years past.

    It was quite common (especially in academic circles) to use Exlibris until the late 19th / early 20th century. The tradition to use Exlibris to mark book ownership is old – the first known Exlibris is from the 15th century.
