Description

A pictorial bookplate on sepia tinted paper with black ink for Emma Adee Powell. It's a picture of a room with a lit fireplace, table with books, an empty chair, and a bookshelf filled. The picture is framed to look like it's in between columns of a building. On top of the frame are three crosses in the shape of a triangle and two banners that collectively say in Latin "CRVX MIHI GRATA QVIES" which translates to "Grace to me the cross."
