Thanks for digging out this info. I recently acquired the two Brunswicks in
beautiful condition. The fourth side is entitled "Christopher Columbus".
They're all of a yiddeshe slant, which I did not know when I bid on them. I
was just curious about their hopefully topical content. The Yiddeshe stuff
was a surprise bonus.
The citation in the the Brunswick files is yet again tantalizing proof that
even official logs have errors / discrepancies and that (in this case) the
proof's in the shellac!
