Baltimore: Fielding Lucas, Jun'r, . Hardcover. This scarce book on the history and development of Baltimore is an important and engrossing piece of Americana.

He also helped found the American Bar Association and the Maryland Historical Society. Latrobe also achieved some distinction as a poet and painter, and was one of the 3-judge panel that awarded Edgar Allan Poe a prize for his “Manuscript in a Bottle”, which was published in Baltimore’s Sunday Visitor paper and helped launch the writer’s career.
