Description

A pictorial bookplate sepia tinted paper with black ink for Louis Henry Bristol. There's a picture of a house's front door framed with an oval border. There's a smaller image to the left of a room that looks to be the library or an office. On the right is an image of a building with a tall cylinder roof. On top is a banner in Latin "Litera Scripta Manet" which translates to "Letters remain written". The rest of the background is corn wallpaper. There are books filling beneath the image.
