"I was received here as if I had dug up the great library of Alexandria intact"
Description                           Estimate: $2,000+          

Pioneering archaeologist (1822-1890) best known for his excavations at the ancient sites of Troy and Mycenae. ALS in German, signed “H. Schliemann,” one page, 5 x 6.75, July 1, 1875. Written from London, a letter to a professor, in full (translated): "You have probably received the copy of my work Troy and Its Remains, which I asked Mr. John Murray to send you. In return, please send one or better two more copies of your `Entdeckung Trojas is Hissarlik' (Discovery of Troy in Hisarlik) to me at this address, for I gave your earlier copy to Mr. Gladstone. I was received here as if I had dug up the great library of Alexandria intact. You will find a little vignette about that in the June 26 issue of the Times." Matted with a modern glossy photo to an overall size of 11.75 x 8.25. In fine condition.
