Letter, 1931 January 26 : Hampstead to Brick Row Bookshop.

Letter from notorious forger and bibliographer Thomas J. Wise to the Brick Row Book Shop, one of the most famous antiquarian bookshops in America.

He also expresses interest in a copy of George Henry Borrow's Targum in its original green wrappers.
