DescriptionThis bookplate, in black ink, contains an escutcheon, gules (red), with a chevron, ermine (white powdered fur with black tufts), and is charged with two crescents over one garbe.

NotesDue to the common name of the originator, it is difficult to determine ownership. A number of William Smiths are mentioned in works on British, American and Canadian bookplates, however, none of the mottos of these match up with the motto on this bookplate.
