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."
