Mystery Bookplate & A Link For History Buffs

There are a number of books at LC with this bookplate and I would like to find out who was the original owner.
The  books were bound in Rio de Janeiro.  So possibly a Brazilian owner?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Note from Lew
 For good reason, I bitch and moan about all the terrible politicians in Washington and sometimes forget how many hard working dedicated people are working  at organizations like The Library Of Congress and
The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration

I am intentionally  keeping this posting brief because I want to encourage you to look at this link from the Bureau Of Archives.

CORRESPONDENCE AND OTHER WRITINGS OF SIX MAJOR SHAPERS OF THE UNITED STATES:

George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams (and family), Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, and James Madison. Over 119,000 searchable documents, fully annotated, from the authoritative Founding Fathers Papers projects.

If you are an American history buff it will impress you.
