    John Stuart Mill Clipped Signature and Carte de Visite Photo. A clipped signature on a 3.25" x 1.25" slip, "Yours most truly/ J. S. Mill", along with a 2.5" x 4" CDV marked "John Watkins, Photo Parliament St" beneath the image. Both are lightly laid down to a 4.5" x 7" sheet. Mill (1806-1873) was an influential English philosopher and economist, an advocate of Utilitarianism. From 1865-1868, as a Member of Parliament, he was the first M.P. to call for women to be given the right to vote. Fine. From the Judith Kaplan Women's History Collection.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
