Joseph Curley Woodward
A pictorial bookplate on faded sepia paper with black ink for Joseph Curley Woodward. There's a man in the forest fighting off a wolf with a spear. The wolf is standing over a dead wolf most likely killed by the man in the photo. The image is framed in a circle and there's a castle in the background at the top. On the bottom there is an image of two swords and a shield. On top of the image is a picture of wolf's side profile. There is a bow and arrow hanging from the border on the top of the bookplate.
