Description: 3 x 5.5-inch envelope affixed with a Scott# 73 2c Andrew Jackson stamp, addressed by Barnard to his friend Dr. John William Draper (1811 - 1882), who was an American scientist, chemist, historian, and pioneer photographer, credited with taking the first image of a female's face in 1839. Draper was also the founder of NYU Medical School. Written on the envelope is: "Prof. John W. Draper, University of New York, Washington Square, New York." Draper has docketed the envelope "Gen. Barnard" -- a wonderful association piece considering the fact that Draper is rare in any form. No date, circa 1863. Very good(+) condition.

Comments: Union General, distinguished scientist, mathematician, and engineer.

I have just received the copy of Mysterious Island by Jules Verne which I ordered previously. The book arrived in the condition in which it was sent and I am very impressed with the condition of the book. I would like to thank the staff for all of their assistance and will certainly order again! Billy Dinwoodie, Johannesburg South Africa
