Included in this package is a handwritten Letter of Recommendation for Edgar Sandel by L. P. Gratacap written on American Museum of Natural History letterhead (77th Street and Central Park West, New York City) that is dated December 19, 1910. The letterhead measures 5 1/4" x 8 1/8".

HISTORY OF AUTHOR:
L. P. Gratacap (November 1, 1850-December 1917) was a naturalist and curator in paleontology and mineralogy at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. A large contributor to scientific journals and science fiction writer, he had many publications to his credit, including articles in Popular Science Monthly and The Mineral Collector, and produced the Popular Guide to Minerals. He was one of the co-founders of the Staten Island Institute of Arts and Sciences (SIIAS) at the College of Staten Island. His fiction-writing colleagues included L. Frank Baum, H. G. Wells, Jules Verne, Jack London, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Edgar Rice Burroughs, and Thomas Edison in the early 1900s. He was honored in 1904 by having a seashell named after him--the Conus gratacapi.

HISTORY OF THE ILLUSTRATOR:
Joseph Cummings Chase (1878-1965) was a world famous portrait artist who was educated at Pratt Institute and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and later at the Academie Julien in Paris. His portfolio included portraits of military and political figures such as Teddy Roosevelt, Will Rogers, Albert Einstein. His work appeared in Boys Life magazine and many books, and fifty of his formal works ended up in the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery collection. He taught at Cooper Union's art school, where a young Eleanor Roosevelt was his student, and he later served as head of the art department and Dean of Hunter College.

This is a great package for any collector interested in collectible and signed books, natural science, museum history, or portrait art! The book alone, unsigned, in this condition, is valued at $225.00
