Paul Revere’s Work Found in Brown’s Rare Book Room - NYTimes.com

A few weeks ago, Ms. Malchodi opened yet another leather-bound book, one of
more than 300,000 rare volumes in the hold of the John Hay
Library<http://library.brown.edu/about/hay/>.
With surgical precision, she turned the pages of a medical text once owned
by Solomon Drowne, Class of ’73 (1773, that is). And there, in the back,
she found a piece of paper depicting the baptism of Jesus. It was signed:

“P. Revere Sculp”
