Edwin Davis French
An engraved armorial bookplate on light sepia paper with black ink for Robert Sedgwick. There is a crest split in two. The left side are four bells in the order of a cross and the right side are two flowers and a lion. Above the crest is a knight's helmet with a lion resting on top, surrounded by calligraphic leaf patterns. The banners collectively say "Confido in domino" in Italian (I trust in dominoes).
