I am requesting some help from E-Sylum readers with a research project. I need to find photographs or portraits of Harold P. Newlin (attorney and 19th century collector, who wrote the first reference on Half Dimes) and Robert Coulton Davis (Philadelphia pharmacist and 19th century collector). Does anyone know where I can find any images? Thanks so much for any help you can give me.
Can anyone help? I'm sure David tried this, but for fun I checked Google images. No portraits of either man, but I did come across the above Robert Coulton Davis bookplate on Flickr. It's in an 1837 book about Philadelphia in the University of Pennsylvania libraries.
