Description

A pictorial bookplate in black ink on sepia tinted paper. There is a young person standing in a grass field that is overlooking a valley and mountains. The child is holding a staff closely. The illustration is framed in a thin, black line in a rectangle. Below the border "PLUS ULTRA" is written. Underneath that there is a vine of leaves and flowers that lead up the right and left side of the border but stops halfway. At the bottom there are the initials "OKC" written in the vines surrounded by flowers.
