Edwin Davis French
An engraved pictorial bookplate on sepia tinted paper with black ink for Emma Toedteberg. There's an open book surrounding by calligraphic leaf patterns that intertwine with foliage and banners. The banners collectively say "In my library I find a friend for every mood". Underneath the name are roman numerals "MDCC CCXIV" (1700 214).
