It’s a book-plate, in the OED’s definition:
As wikipedia says -
Also, In the United States, bookplates replaced book rhymes after the 19th century.
It is an "Ex Libris" bookplate (or stamp), usually placed on the inside of the front, whereupon one writes one's name as owner of the book (or orders them pre-printed with one's name).
This is a popular one in the US.
