Adams page 115: "The high point of the Bluestone series is, of course, Albert A. Grinnell's paper money. A serious collector (and, in real life, the President of Grinnell Brothers Music House) Grinnell spent most of his adult life in assembling a landmark collection. Included therein were holdings of United States notes, National Bank notes and New York paper money that remain unrivaled in both scope and features." Clain-Stefanelli 13539. McKerchar 155. Ex Federal Brand library, with the firm's name in gilt on the spine.
