The Mineralogical Record - Leopold Eger 38 x 60 mm,
No address. Handwritten on the back: "Sadebeck Samling," probably referring to the crystallographer Alexander Sadebeck (1843-1879),and dated 1882--three years after his death, probably when his collection was sold. So this label can date to no later than 1879.
