Description

A pictorial bookplate on white paper with black ink for Maria M. Sterling. There's a stack of books with a lit candle on top that illuminates the rest of the image. In the back are full bookshelves. The frame of the image is a circle and says "How far that little candle throw his beams" and on the outside of that rae leaves, like a wreath. In the middle on top of the image is an owl.
