Description

A pictorial bookplate on sepia tinted paper with black ink for The Blackstone Public Library located in Branford, Connecticut. There's a picture of the building on the bottom and the frame is a horizontal oval with the year 1893. Towards the top of the bookplate is a image of a table stacked with books that make a big pile. There's also a quote "'give these books for the founding a college in this colony' -Branford 1700". The bookplate has a black background with artistic leaves that spiral and tangle around each other, the banners, and the images.
