Wonderful Early Bookplate

Great early bookplate with a wonderful message for anyone who borrows James Moore's book.
"Note! Neither blemish this book nor the leaves double down. / Nor lend it to each idle friend in the town: / Return it when read -- or if lost please supply / Another, as good to the mind and the eye. / With right and with reason you need but be friends / And each book in my study your pleasure attends."
