Newspaper article: New York Times, 30 April 1875: "THE NATURALIST AUDUBON'S LIBRARY DESTROYED BY FIRE. Louisville, Ky., April 29.—A special to the Courier-Journal from Shelbyville, Ky., reports the destruction by fire to-day of the residence of Mrs. Lucy Bakewell, at that place. In the house was the library of the late naturalist, Audubon. Mrs. Bakewell was Audubon's sister-in-law, and his library had been left with her. The collection consisted of about 800 volumes, and was of very great value to men of science. Nothing was saved."
