History of the Old Elm, Vol. XIII.; G. W. M

Not on view

Solid block of wood, likely elm, carved in the shape of a small a book, and painted to look like a half-leather binding in red, black, and gold with floral motifs and shield with the initials "G.W.[M]." Where the box was damaged, features of the wood were visible, and everything was consistent with elmwood (Ulmus sp.).. -- description by Mindell Dubansky in consultation with Lynn Heckman.
