Description

A pictorial bookplate in black ink on white paper. A woman is standing in a garden and smelling a flower from a tall bush on her left. She is holding a notebook with her right hand but her face is turned to the flowers. Above the woman there is an arch that says "FRANCES DALLAM MOSS" and small images of an angel on the left and right side underneath the name. At the bottom of the illustration, there is a banner with "That thereby Beauty's Rose should never die" inscribed in it.
