John William Jameson
A pictorial bookplate on light sepia tinted paper with black ink for Robert Sonnenschein. "Ex-Libris" is used to show who the book owner is. There is a man with a long beard and long hair reading a book at the desk. He is holding a quill pen in one hand, the book in the other, and he is using a candle as his light.
