Description

A pictorial bookplate on sepia paper with black ink. In the center is what looks to be like a library room. There's a tall bookshelf next to the open window. You can see trees and hills outside. There are books that clutter the desk and below is a passage, "Who hath a book hath but to read and he may be king indeed His kingdom is his ingle-nook". Framing the room are flowers reflected on both the right and left. On top is the name "Kenneth Glendower Darling".
