The book lovers are coming! Paul Revere's personal bookplate design adorns this handy notebook. His engraved bookplate features a crest being held by a lion. The crest consists of three stripes divided diagonally by a panel with three fleur-de-lis. At the helm is a dove with its wingspan extended. A ribbon scroll beneath reads “Pugna Pro Patria.” The lion has a full mane, partially open mouth and is standing, its tail to the right; his eyes are averted right. Inspired to make this book yours?
This commemorative notebook celebrates the special exhibition Beyond Midnight: Paul Revere, an unparalleled examination of Revere’s many skills as a craftsman and his entrepreneurial spirit as an early American artisan who stood at the intersection of social, economic, and political life during the formation of the new nation.
The patriot, silversmith, and entrepreneur Paul Revere was forever immortalized in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s 1861 poem, “Paul Revere’s Ride,” but his genuine accomplishments are often eclipsed by the legend of the midnight journey. This groundbreaking exhibition (September 6, 2019—January 12, 2020), featuring more than 150 objects, re-examines Revere’s accomplishments.
