Description

A pictorial bookplate in black ink on sepia tinted paper for Maimie Cohn. "Ex-Libris" is used to show who the book owner is. There is a woman sitting down looking at a blank page in a book that is being held by a man. The man showing her the book is kneeling and has an admirable expression on his face while looking at her. Next to the woman is a statue of a head and a vase. Next to the man's feet is a hammer, rose, and the top of a building's column. On the left and right side there is a variety of fruits hanging vertically with a ribbon at the top.
