Betty and Lindley Abbot
An armorial bookplate with a lush garden scene at the center of the round seal. Books are stacked on round shelves, and there is a motto written "Haurit aquam cribis qui vult sine descere libris". Further out in this seal is written Ex Libris as well as the names Betty and Lindley Abbot. At top and bottom are a coat of arms and perhaps two koi fish.
