Bookplate designed for Charles D Edwards, with image of Lady in sail boat, with lettering of the legend "That mans unwise wille searche for ille and maye prevent it setting stille." and decorative border, typical Jessie M King design, signed in plate lower right. Np (Glasgow); Nd (1907). Image size 130 x 92mm, with border, black & white with grey tint, printed on Japanese vellum paper. Professionally removed from a book in Edwards’ library.

From our latest catalogue ‘100 Art Prints, Multiples, Books & Catalogues.’

Colin White in a Guide to the printed works of Jessie M King, dates it as circa 1907. A Bookplate or Ex Libris label designed to be pasted in to the owner's library of books, denoting ownership, they were often printed on Japanese vellum (thick manufactured paper, resembling vellum).

Very Good condition indeed for age; with some remains of gum on the rear.
