Letter to C.W. Mayo (7/27/54) from Bismarck A. Schifferes. Schifferes' son was the apparent publisher of this volume and Bismarck sent the book to Mayo as a gift (as he did a prior book written by his son). The book is also signed by Mayo on the title page. A handsome copy with an intriguing background. (Inventory #: 2466)
