Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka collection
In English and German.
Digitized by Boston Photo Imaging April 2013.
Displayed in the exhibition titled "The Blaschka sea creatures : inspiration and creation", held at the Rakow Research Library, May 18-November 9, 2007.
According to Henri Reiling, these are drafts of letters to agents and buyers. SEE ALSO Reiling's Drafts of Blaschka business letters, 1880-1885 & transcriptions of selected drafts (CMGL BIB 39899, QH324.8 .B64r).
Includes an English translation of Leopold's introduction to one on the catalogs; it seems to match the introduction in the 1885 German catalog. B. Hylen thinks that it is the Ward catalog, but the 1878 copy of the Ward catalog has a brief version of this.
Includes orders from Prof. Ward (Rochester, N.Y.), H. Fric, Prof. Haeckel, the Superintendent of the Indian Museum (Calcutta), Mr. Damon (England), New Zealand, and the curator of the Tokio ([sic] Educational Museum (Japan).
