Dick Hall's House
A pictorial bookplate on sepia tinted paper with black ink for Dick Hall's House. The center image is a lake with two books on the water and a tent on land that's surrounded by tall trees. Around the center image are various other images. There is an image of a man hurdling dated 1927 and a school building. Between these images are books, one book is open and the others are stacked. There are two crests, one on top of each image. In the background are pine tree branches. On top in the middle is an image of buckets hanging over a fire with one fish on each side of the image. Below are three banners going across the bookplate saying in Latin "Fidelitas Facilitas Felicitas" translating to "Fidelity. Facility. Happiness".
