Poinsett (1779- 1851) was an important emissary for the Monroe and Jackson administrations, travelling across Europe and Russia and later acting as special agent to Mexico and various South American governments. His interest in botany caused him to bring north from Mexico the 'Christmas Eve flower' which we know as the Poinsettia. A clean, bright, sound copy.
