Description

A pictorial bookplate in black ink on light sepia paper. A young woman is sitting on a ledge that overlooks trees and hills. She has an open book in her lap but she is looking up at the scenery. By her feet on the left "beauty Through my senses stole and" is written, and on the right side of her feet "I yielded myself to the perfect whole" is written. In between these phrases "viola & meyer" is written.
