Description

An engraved pictorial bookplate on sepia tinted paper with black ink for the New York Yacht Club Library. The front of the ship has a window looking into a new scene of an anchor in the sea with ships in the distance. In front of the ship are calligraphic leaves in the pattern of waves and there's a banner that says the title of the library in Latin "Nos agimur tumidis velis". On the bottom is a banner with space to have something written in with a prompt of "No". On the very bottom of the bookplate "Presented by" is written.
