SMALL WORLD!  For the last two years that I lived in NYC before moving to Barbados, I "loft sat" at a beautiful, sprawling loft apartment on 10th St.  Just to the east of me was Forth Avenue (a.k.a., what Park Avenue becomes below 14th Street). It was less than 2 blocks from the address of the publisher of this book!

OMG thanks, Steven! It’s in color, too!!
I much prefer print because I underline and mark up and dog ear so I am not unhappy about spending $10 but how great to view this on an iPad or something.
I don’t go to archive.org <http://archive.org/> much. What is the difference between them and Google? Do you think there are more books there?

E. Brewerton medalled at the RPS’s exhibition of 1898!
