A neat "Mifst to DURHAM" on an entire to Egleston (now Eggleston), from James Sowerby, renowned naturalist and illustrator regarding plants and vegetables.
This is a 1796 three-sided letter/entire written and signed by James Sowerby (1757-1822) renowned English naturalist, illustrator and mineralogist, addressed to a gentleman in Egleston, with "Mifsent to DURHAM", and charged 8d. The contents relate to botanical and floral samples Sowerby is in search of. Fascinating and possibly unique item.
