The Library Convent of the Sacred Heart
A pictorial bookplate in black ink on sepia tinted paper depicting Jesus Christ at the center of an architectural frame. Below is a lamp between shelved books on either side, and leaves, perhaps grapes. There is a banner with the words "Lumen Semitis Ineis" trasnlating to "the light of my paths". There are more words around Jesus' head, "Duchesne America 1818 St. Madeline Sophie Barat France 1800 Blessed", presumably saints of the Catholic Chruch.
