Hopson, William Fowler
Tobias A. Wright
A pictorial bookplate on sepia tinted paper with black ink for Tobias A. Wright. There's a picture of a wood cabin by a creek. There's a tree across from the cabin that pops out of the picture into the next. The image on top of the landscape is a steam engine with the year 1861. Next to it on the right are books and on the left is the top of the tree that starts in the bottom photo. The border has a spiral pattern and one bird on both the left and right bottom corner. On the top border in the middle is a crest with something written in Latin, "Labor omnia vincit" which translates to "Work conquers all".
