Hopson, William Fowler
George Seymour Godard
A pictorial bookplate on light sepia paper with black ink for George Seymour Godard. The bookplate looks like a door to a mausoleum. There are four letters on the stone to the right and left, "Y W G" and "T W E" On the sides of the mausoleum is a sentence "Some to read others to own" dated 1921. On the top of the mausoleum is a crest, two eagles intertwining, and a deer's head.
