DescriptionBlack ink on white paper. The crest features an armoured arm extending straight out of a crest-wreath. The hand is clutching a spear with points on either end. Droplets are falling from the right spear point. The shield is black with a white chevron. The chevron has a thin white border along its top and bottom edges. The shield is charged with three white double-ended spears, the same style as that in the crest, two over one. The spears have a more elaborate top tip with a line down the middle, with the bottom tip being a simple, undecorated triangle shape. Below the shield, the motto is printed in black, capitalized, serif font. The ribbon has curling ends that split into two with rounds on each end. Underneath the motto, the bookplate owner's name is printed in large, sentence case, black cursive font.

NotesAn R.A.A. Jones, Esquire, lived in Guildford, England and had connections to Montreal Children's Hospital (now Children's Memorial Hospital). Jones visited Montreal with his sister Mrs. Arnott. In correspondence, A. Mackenzie Forbes asked Jones for a donation to help build cottage hospitals in a new location on Cedar Avenue. When Jones died in 1909, he left $10, 500 to build the Arnott Cottage, which had a capacity of 10 beds.
