Mimi Horniman

Mimi might be a diminutive for Minifred Louisa Bennet, who in 1897 married Frederick John Horniman, who founded the Horniman museum. The initials 'MLH' in the centre of the bookplate confirm this possibility. I think that she then emigrated to Australia after Frederick's death in 1906 and died there in 1931.
