A printed plate showing the Austrian town of Hallein that appears to have been torn from the text "Die interessantesten Punkte von Salzburg, Tyrol und Salzkammergut" [which roughly translates to "The most interesting points of Salzburg, Tyrol and Salzkammergut"]. Hitchcock has noted on the sheet that it was given to him by a Priest Engelmeyer, whom he met on a bus when traveling in Europe. Hitchcock notes that Engelmeyer was amazed to meet Americans. The item is undated. It is estimated that Hitchcock's writing dates approximately to the period of his 1850 European trip when he traveled through the region (Germany and Switzerland specifically). The plate appeared in a three volume set published between 1837 and 1839.
