Proof copy of the lineoleum-block custom bookplate, 4" X 6½" (framed to 5" X 7¼"), n.p., n.y. Fine. Handsome proof pull of this rectangular (rounded corners) striking example by a talented practitioner known only by the tiny "V.G." initials, an ornate image noting "Ex Libris / Arnold Larsen" in crossing banners and other typical bibliophilic features, a rose-clutching hand, etc. Tastefully and simply single-matted in cream and framed in a simple ½" black frame. Arnold Larsen was not a famed bookman, but anyone who frequented the fondly-remembered rare books department at Marshall Field's in downtown Chicago knew him. A sharp example of bookplate art.
