Rynick (b. 1856) was a hackman and coupe driver in Bridgeton, N.J.; his diary for 1916 is at Rutgers University Library. The book was used by a former owner to preserve presumably local New Jersey plants, with the name in pencil along a top page edge and the flower and/orleaves pressed below; some of the botanical specimens remain. In Very Good- Condition: leather label slightly chipped; edges rubbed; boards are scraped; foxing throughout; light discoloration occasionally along gutters from botanical specimens; tight.
