This New York wholesale druggist is best known as a serious ornithologist. ALS, 2pp, 4½" X 7", New York, NY, 1893 February 25. Addressed to Charles Aldrich. Very good. Would be fine but for ugly mounting trace along top 1" of first page. Transmits (not present) "a copy of the Bibliography of my writings, Bulletin No. 40 of the U.S. National Museum -- just published. This has in an engraved portrait of myself. I also send with this letter [not present] an Mss. as you request, this was published in the Annales of the N.Y. Acad. of Sciences." Accompanied by a superb 5" X 7" steel engraved portrait of Lawrence -- probably the same one he refers to in his letter. Despite flaw, an attractive letter. Bookseller Inventory # 20916
