William L. Freyhof's cool bookplate

They don't make 'em like this any more.

This black-and-white bookplate for Wm. L. Freyhof was pasted inside the 1904 edition of "A Book About Doctors" by John Cordy Jeaffreson.1

The illustration of the a pipe-smoking man and his dog by a fireplace2 was done by "T. Tyler," according to the small printing in the lower-right corner.

If you're a vintage bookplate fan, here are some previous posts in which they are featured:

1. The book, published by The Saalfield Publishing Co., was part of "The Doctor's Recreation Series."
2. It looks like this guy has some action figures from Leni Riefenstahl's "Olympia" on the mantle above his fireplace. Which is kind of awkward.

  1. I have one of William's calling cards, that he wrote 1801-7 Union Bldg. Cincinnati, Ohio on the back. He gave it to my grandfather, probably around 1908-09.
