At the top of the bookplate is printed capitalized sans-serif block text filled with horizontal black stripes. Some of the text is obscured by the top of a feather quill, which extends from the top right corner down to the bottom left corner. On top of the center of the quill is an open scroll with the top and bottom ends still rolled. The bookplate creator's initials are printed in black sans-serif font on the curl of the paper at the top of the scroll. Cursive sentence case black font is printed on the scroll.

NotesThe quote on the bookplate is attributed to Maeterlinck, namely the Belgian author Maurice Maeterlinck. Maeterlinck primarily wrote lyrical drama, but also wrote poetry and prose. He was born in 1862 and died in 1949. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1911.

TranscriptEX LIBRIS L.P. Il y a plus d'un rêve dans chaque vie. Il y a en peut-être autant que d'années. Pour moi, le dernier c'est = Savoir. C'est, je pense, le plus long, le moins réalisable. Maeterlinck B. HALLÉ
TranslationBookplate. There is more than one dream in every life. There are perhaps as many as years. For me, the last one is = ‘Knowledge'. This is, I think, the longest, the least possible.
