Description

An engraved pictorial bookplate on sepia tinted paper with black ink. There's a priest sitting at a table reading a book with a stack of books on the same table and a full bookshelf behind him. The window besides him is a mosaic window, indicating he may be at church. There is a banner at the top that reads "'Here you have Heaven and Earth and all that goes to make up life' A. Kempis". On the bottom there are books and a letter but are slightly hidden by the calligraphic pattern. The bookplate states "Paul Lemperly, His Book".
