Billhead for Dicksons' Brothers at the Adelphi [ie 'brothers'] seed warehouse, Edinburgh, decorated with a vignette of a bread fruit tree. Pacific interest. The family running this business were apparently unrelated to the London seedsman James Dickson (1738?-1822), and was seemingly run by James Dickson (1777-1834) and his half-brother George (1783-1825).
Ex: Norman Blackburn; see Mark Lawley, 'James Dickson 1738-1822'.
