Provenance: Contemporary engraved armorial ownership bookplate of Boston Brahmin businessman John Amory Lowell (1798-1881) featuring his coat of arms: the rather felangist hand holding three downwardly pointing arrows, the traditional stag's head replaced by an urn, and the Latin "Occasionem Cognosce." Laid in is a pencil sketch on onionskin of the bookplate, though possibly a sketch made by the later owner, John Lowell, Jr., whose 1946 ownership inscription is on the front free endpaper.
