Image of book plate

Pictorial bookplate for A. Love.
F. Borders, Sc. S.J. Groves, del. Circa 1880

Bookplate

The imaginative and beautiful illustration on this small bookplate bears the name of the book's owner and is usually found pasted to the inside front cover of a book.

This pictorial example with three cupids emerging from a cloud, appropriately embracing the name of "A. Love", also bears the motto, "Amor Durante Vita".

Q Does anyone have any details on who "A. Love" is?
