Inscribed to the German dermatologist Alwin Scharlau: "Verzeihen Sie meine Verspätung; die Karte war aus Versehen an einen falschen Platz geraten. Anbei meinen Namenszug für Ihre Sammlung [...]". - After training as a bookseller for three years in Göttingen, Ulbrich switched to the Berlin Academy and was commissioned with pen-and-ink drawings for the "Bilderwerk Schlesischer Kunstdenkmäler" in 1891 by the "Schlesisches Museum der Bildenden Künste" in Breslau, where he settled down and remained for the rest of his life, sometimes making study tours through Germany, Europe and Egypt, which inspired many art works.

- A few tiny ink spots. Self-addressed by the collector on the reverse. The Mecklenburg physician Scharlau (b. 1888) assembled a collection of artists' autographs by personal application..
