MATTHEW STICKNEY PICTURE FOUND  

   In response to Pete Smith's quest for a picture of collector 
   Matthew Stickney, George Kolbe writes: 
   "A good engraving of Stickney appeared in:  

  1)  Many hardbound copies of his 1907 Chapman sale 
       catalogue (both plated and non);  

  2)  It appears to have been sent out with at least some 
       1907 issues of  "The Numismatist" - I have seen several 
        engravings bound in volumes of that year with the margins 
        heavily trimmed (small than issue size) and also a number 
        like that loose;  

   3) A drawing by Alan Dietz in Vol. 1 of Adams "United States 
       Numismatic Literature," derived from the above engraving.  

   The Essex Institute in Salem, Mass., which held Stickney's 
   numismatic library (much of which was sold in our June 1981 
   sale), may well have other portraits."  

   Joel Orosz concurred and added: "I have not seen any other 
   images of Stickney, but it is possible that others exist."
