Description

An engraved pictorial bookplate on sepia tinted paper with faded black ink. There's an ocean view framed in an oval with banners surrounding. The banners collectively say "A lover of good books is heir to all the ages". Beneath it is a woman pondering while reading at a desk at night. This bookplate belongs to Mary Emma Plummer.
