Notes Bookplate (or ex libris;) using a design attributed to Lethaby. The late Arts and Crafts style and nature motifs (especially the odd looking Lion and Unicorn) may suugest that Lethaby was involved.
Object Notes This appears to be some kind of photolithographic copy of what appears to have originally been a woodcut. This may suggest that although Lethaby may have designed the bookplate, a second party carried out the task of cutting the wood and printing off impressions. There is little evidence of Lethaby making prints of any kind, so his involvement in the realisation of this design seems limited
