Adams A: “The high point ... of Mason’s entire career was the sale of the Fewsmith Cabinet on October 4, 1870. This collection was rich not only in patterns but in copper, colonials and early proofs as well as several other useful departments.” While priced copies are seen from time to time, copies with names are distinctly less frequently encountered.
