These pockets were in the back, which would be too strange (to me at least) to have a bookplate back there.  If they (Previous Owner) don't scar up the endpapers, I can usually "shave" off the glue and paper bits for a fairly clean result, leaving only shiny trails where the glue used to be.  Although, I certainly have a little pack of tasteful "sticker" Ex Libris (Ex Librii?) for those books that have had bookplates ripped out and now feature a perfect bookplate-shaped scar.  *Sheesh*

I handle unsightly pocket scrapes by covering them with a tasteful 
ownership book plate.
