A photo postcard showing Twain smoking a pipe in a windowsill at Stormfield, flanked by his business advisor, Ralph Ashcroft, and his secretary, Isabel Lyon.
William Robertson Coe (1869-1955) was a famous rare book collector (Coe Collection at Yale), insurance and railroad executive and American Studies pioneer. His wife, Mai Rogers Coe (1875-1924), knew Twain through his friendship with her parents, the wealthy industrialist Henry Huttleston Rogers and Abbie Palmer Rogers. Rogers was Twain's greatest friend towards the end of his life, and was at times believed to be the richest man in America, outdoing his partner John D. Rockefeller.
Faint staining but fine.
