A pictorial bookplate on light sepia tinted paper with black ink for Frederick Bohn Fisher. "Ex-Libris" is used to show who the book owner is. There is a raised statue of a cross inside a tiled room with a beam of light coming from the top. Behind the cross on the left is the Taj Mahal and on the right is the Porcelain Tower of Nanjing. The sides of the illustration are bordered by a long staff that curls at the top. In the staff on the left on top in the curl is a goat. The outside of the border are single flowers lined up. On the bottom of the border there are two orchids.
