JOHN ERICSSON
(1803-1889) American engineer and designer of the Union's Monitor and the first screw-powered vessel. Good content A.L.S. "J. Ericsson", 1p. 4to., [n.p.], Jan. 22, 1860, in part: "...The second accident with the 18 in. is easily accounted for as poor Linnan [?] was trying to make the engine do by excessive heat what it lacked in legitimate power...I cannot tender specific advise...the 18 inch...has the power to do the pumping at a Railway Station which sends off twenty trains a day...". Very good.
Estimate $ 200-300
