The kinds of ex libris were mentioned, particularly, the handwritten ex libris in antique books in three Mexican libraries which protect antique books. The importance of identifying and keeping a record of the hand written ex libris was pointed out in the cataloguing process so that it can be registered in the catalogue libraries. There is a reflection of the utility of grouping in the phrase “handwritten ex libris” the private or institutional owner.

Key words: Belonging marks, ex libris, handwritten ex libris, stamps, fire marks, antique book, catalogued index.
