PUBLISHER : R.H. Woodward & Company, Baltimore, 1890s?

This company is so far known to me only by a Lucile dated 1893 and a 1893 copyright notice. Publisher has not yet been researched but hits on Google Books suggest the firm was active from about 1889 to about 1900. It did not submit catalogs to PTLA, and it has no DLB entry. See The Rodgers Company, Philadelphia for a note on its acquistions of a Woodward line in 1894.
