Description

An engraved pictorial bookplate on sepia tinted paper with black ink. The main image is a church with vines on the outside walls of the church. Above it is the front view of a two-story house with a tree in the front and a fence surrounding the lawn. Seperating these two images are banners and an American colonial flag crest. The first banner in Latin states "Pro deo", the second banner, still in Latin, states "Et patria", which translates to God and country. The bookplate says "Ex Libris William Augustus Brewer".
