An engraved pictorial bookplate on sepia tinted paper with brown ink. The bookplate says "Ex Libris James Wilson Bullock MDCCCC", ex libris is used to identify the owner of the bookplate. There's an image of river between hills with the sun setting behind the mountains. The image has a simple oval frame and on top is calligraphic border surrounding a king's crown and banner. The banner says in latin "Nil Conscire Sibi" which translates to nothing against him. There's a person looking straight ahead that looks like an ancient greek soldier.
