In black ink. This twentieth century bookplate features a Canadian design. In the center is an escutcheon charged with a large maple leaf, seed pods and the originator’s initial “H.” The escutcheon is set on a dark, circular background and surrounded by maple boughs. Below the escutcheon is a banner displaying the originator’s name.
No additional information on the bookplate owner was discovered. There is a cipher in the lower corner which may identify the bookplate’s creator. The initials are undecipherable, but could say, “H.A.H.” For more information on the Thomas Murray Collection, see: http://www.library.ubc.ca/spcoll/murray/default.html
