Bookplate design.

The online exhibition "Here Today, Here Tomorrow: Varieties of Medical Ephemera" from the National Library of Medicine's History of Medicine division includes bookplates with medically related subjects. Go here to see sample bookplates from individuals such as Danish actor-book collector Jean Hersholt and physician-writer Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.
