Rather nice description of Gaskill's bookplate from the Boston Athenaeum: "Central panel with interior view of a library containing bookshelves, desk, and fireplace; surrounded by a frame of architectual elements, a portion of which was inspired by Horace Walpole's chimneypiece or mantle in the Round Drawing Room at Strawberry Hill ; name in panel at foot." Ref: Goodspeed, C.E. Sidney Lawton Smith, 96. 

This is an oversized or heavy book, which requires additional postage for international delivery outside the US.
