Bookplate reading "This book belongs to E. M. Forster" and with inscription "E. M. Forster from A Colvin Jan 5th 1876, 18 Dulce Street". The novelist E. M. Forster was born in 1876, so the inscription definitely does not relate to him, but perhaps to his father, Edward Morgan Llewellyn Forster, an architect. The bookplate could be the novelists as it is quite simple and in modern type.
