A pictorial bookplate in black ink on cream paper, featuring a serene woodland scene. A circular frame, richly adorned with floral patterns, encloses a view of a log fence amid a dense forest. The banner above reads "EX-LIBRIS," and the scene is wrapped with a ribbon containing the Latin phrase "IN UTROQUE FORTUNA PARATUS," translating to "Prepared for either fortune." Centered below the image is the name "KEBLERS."
