Curran, Mary Eleanor (1868-1930)
Robert Hanna Waterman
A pictorial bookplate on sepia paper with black ink. There's a little child standing on the trunk of a slanted tree. Under one arm they are holding a big book titled "Idyls of the King" written on the cover. In the other hand they are holding out the book with one hand on one side so it could fall open. Written inside is "Robert Hanna Waterman's Book" with a small black heart next to book. The bottom of the tree has big rocks and there's a angry man hiding behind them looking at the child. There is a crescent moon in the sky.
