Price: $16.00

Publisher: New York, Reigles & Co.: 1861

Seller ID: 2103

Condition: Very Good condition


Here's an ephemera item which deserve its title -- the odds of an empty envelope hanging around for over 150 years is amazing. I have never seen one before in person, but I have seen pictures.

I had one of these before, but it didn't have this wonderful laid-in bird's eye view of the area as it was in 1884.
