An etched pictorial bookplate on light sepia paper with black ink. On top "Ex Libris Elsie Allen" is written. There are three kids dancing in the forest with a tall, slim tree on each side of the picture. Beneath the children is a passage/quote "The circle of existence is a ring where of the signet is humanity". Under the passage is a knight's helmet with feathers and a lion on top with the knight's gloves on each side of the helmet.
