The eighth Librarian of Congress served longer than any other -- 1899 to 1939 -- and introduced many improvements considered standard today. AQS, 1p, 6 3/4" X 5¼", Washington, DC, 1929 February 22. Very good. Homely mounting trace along upper left edge, not affecting text; slight mounting traces on verso. In the librarian's fine, spidery script , he pens a slight misquotation: "'In proportion as the abundance of government gives / force to public opinion, it should be enlightened.' / Washington, Farewell Address / Herbert Putnam," adding at lower left, "Library of Congress / Washington DC. / Feb. 22d / 1929." Handsomely penned in black ink. Bookseller Inventory # 40394
