Fantastic original bookplate engraved by Paul Revere for David Greene, 3" x 3-3/4", featuring a heavily decorated Chippendale-style border with mantling, leaves and flowers surrounding a crest. The crest's imagery features three bucks facing left, with the bust of a buck with a full set of antlers at the helm. The ribbon scroll beneath reads "Nec Timeo Nec Sperno" and beneath that, the name "David Greene" with swirls and flourishes surrounding his name. The artist's name, "Revere Scl," appears in small script in the lower right. In fine condition. David Greene was born into an affluent Boston mercantile family, graduated valedictorian of the Harvard class of 1768, and later received a second degree from Yale. He came to prominence as a prosperous merchant in Boston, but was forced into exile in 1775 due to his support of the Loyalist cause.
