References:
CAT JAMESON,Robert 1810 821
Notes:
From William hunter's original bequest,. Has an adhering label bearing the number "1." (over which the Jameson catalogue number 821 is stuck), which looks like a Jacob Forster dealer one, but it doesn't match any item number 1 on any of the surviving bills . Very fine. May well be from St. Andreasberg, in the Harz mountains of Germany.
