Bird, Elisha Brown
An engraved pictorial bookplate on sepia paper with black ink for Jessica Dragonette, a pioneer radio artist, soprano, and concert soloist with the New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia, and Chicago Symphonies. There's a woman standing on a rock with her arms extended down and out looking up at the sky. Behind this woman is the silhouette of a woman player the harp, as if she is made of clouds. The bottom of the border has flowers and calligraphic leaves. Inside the sides of the border are music notes.
