Information about this image:
Original: Published Wednesday, 17 September 1884, in the (San Francisco) Daily Alta California 37, 12575, page 1, column 3.

Note: A nearly identical announcement also appeared the following day. Except for "Moonrise in Ross Valley", all of the titles listed here are also in the list of paintings exhibited at the Mechanics' Institute Nineteenth Industrial Exhibition, but since Schafer exhibited only 30 paintings at that fair, he must have added at least 35 more paintings for this sale. The catalogue mentioned has not been located. This announcement is part of a public relations campaign consisting of at least ten newspaper notices, reports, and advertisements. The clippings are numbered (1) through (10).
