Description

A pictorial bookplate in black ink on white paper, presenting a street view of a two-story building labeled "JOHN BOUVÉ CLAPP. BOSTON." The scene is lively, with a horse-drawn carriage and pedestrians. The urban landscape features a cobblestone street and a sidewalk leading to the building, which has classical architectural elements. Above the scene, a banner with a theatrical mask completes the design, and the artist's signature "S.L.S. 1909" is located at the bottom.
