All these prints are from a book which once belonged to Mr. Thomas Alexander Farnum of Providence, RI. This book was sold with his other things after his death, the covers were torn offm and some old woodcuts were taken out of it. In this condition it came to Mr. Stetson, and from him to the Museum.
