Very minor pen hole in sky portion. Some moderate foxing in margin. Image very good. Handsomely framed.

Reps, Cities on Stone, p. 93. Reps locating only four copies. A disastrous hurricane in August of 1886 and the fear of future tropical storms forced the town to be abandoned.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
