A pictorial bookplate in black ink on sepia tinted paper for Samuel T. Shaw. "Ex-Libris" is used to show who the book owner is. There is a woman kneeling on one knee with her arms in a running pose. Her right hand is holding a banner that says "1920. Ex-Libris Samuel T. Shaw". The illustration is in a circled border with grapes filling in the empty space.
