George Glazer and Elimelech
In his booth at the fair, George sold an 18th Century Covens & Mortier historical map of the Roman Empire to 10-year old Elimelech (above). The young collector selected the map himself, and his mother, shown in the background, approved his use of $75, a gift from his grandfather, for the purchase.
