An engraved pictorial bookplate on sepia tinted paper with black ink. It's a room with a fireplace and the walls are bookshelves filled with books. The table has a light, books, and materials scattered on the top. The bookplate says "Ex Libris Jonathan Godfrey", ex libris is used to identify the owner of the bookplate. There's also a location written "Fairfield, Conn". There's a banner that wraps the frame on the top that says in latin "Deus et Libertas" which translates to God and freedom.
