ERS-120. (wood chips) Original 1850 Minot’s Ledge Light House.

ERS-120. (wood chips) Original 1850 Minot’s Ledge Light House. From the personal collection of Edward Rowe Snow, found in his barn, come these rare wood chips from the original Minot’s Ledge Light House. Mr. Snow was fond of making special editions of his books by including these and other mementos in the volumes. It has been well established that such chips that Mr. Snow included were indeed authentic and a number of photos and written accounts exist verifying the sources from which these chips were made. Included is one wood chip from the original 1850 Minot’s Ledge Light House, along with a photocopy of Mr. Snow’s 12 page typewritten description of contents which he included in his package “The Drama of New England in Charts, Maps and Memorabilia by Edward Rowe Snow”. In this, he discusses how he obtained such wood pieces, along with a number of other items that he included in his books and pamphlets. A rare opportunity to obtain these sought after pieces. $22 each.
