Bookplate for Manuel A. Ortiz
Date Unknown / Francesco Gamba, Milan, Italy
A pictorial-style bookplate in black ink on ivory paper featuring an image of a sailing ship with black sails with crosses on them. Behind the ship is a sword, and beneath is the text "Por Castilla y por Leon, Ex libris Manuel A. Ortiz," which possibly refers to the Spanish community of Castilla y Leon. It is marked from Milan, Italy, on the back.
