La Exposicion Iberica de Ex-Libris,
Valencia 1950

I have here two bookplate-related postal covers (bibliophilately) advertising an exhibition of ex-libris or bookplate art, I would suppose, in Valencia, Spain, the week of May 15-21, 1950. I cannot find anything on this exposition/exhibition, nor can I find anything on the addressee.

Another clue is in the illustration of the bookplate on the first cover (zoomed-in shot below). The name Juan Carsi y Figueras is the owner name depicted on the plate. That lead dead-ends quickly. Perhaps the Bookplate Junkie can shed some light on this Exposicion.

I didn't want to wait to find out the story behind these covers. They are too unique, interesting, and attractive not to share now.
