    Actress Sarah Bernhardt Cabinet Photograph and Autograph Note Signed "Sarah Bernhardt". A superb lot including a French cabinet card, 4" x 6.5", captioned "M'lle Sarah Bernhardt". The "Devine Sarah" is posed standing in an ornate dress with a parasol, and with a coquettish look on her face. There are some contemporary and later notes in ink on the verso of the card and the bottom corners are chipped, otherwise the sepia portrait is in very good condition. The portrait is offered with a one page autograph note written and signed by the actress on Carlton Hotel, London letterhead. The 5" x 7.25" note reads in full: "I am very glad to see you Mr. James after the third act tomorrow, Sincerely Sarah Bernhardt". The note's paper has toned slightly, otherwise it is in very good condition.
