A very substantial group of this scarce bank note reporter, which began publication in 1847. According to a biographical piece published by Marcus A. Casey in the 1896 volume of The Connecticut Quarterly, Brigadier General Elihu Geer (1817-87) spent much of his life in the printer industry, being the publisher of the Hartford Journal, the Congregationalist and the present Connecticut Bank Note List. A prominent citizen of Hartford, his papers are held at Yale University. His Conn. Bank Note List regularly reported on circulating counterfeits and provided an extensive listing of bank notes current in New England. Ex Armand Champa library (Sale IV, lot 3533).
