Image of book plate

Bookplate

The imaginative and beautiful illustration on this small bookplate, circa 1880, bears the name of the book's owner and is usually found pasted to the inside front cover of a book.

This pictorial example with three cupids emerging from a cloud, appropriately embracing the name of "A. Love", also carries the motto, "Amor Durante Vita" beneath which can be found the maker and artist names - F. Borders, Sc. and S.J. Groves, del.

Q Does anyone have any details on who "A. Love" is?
