Description

Bookplate for the library of Henry Tatnall Brown, Jr. Henry Brown's bookplate may be a miniature autobiography: the three institutional seals at the bottom suggest that he attended the public schools of Philadelphia ("Good instruction is better than riches"), Haverford College, and was a member of the Orpheus Club. The golf clubs and guitar in the drawing of the library probably represent, along with the books, his hobbies.
