    Mathew Brady 1862 Document Signed "M Brady" on the verso of a receipt from the Photographic Galleries of M. B. Brady, 7.5" x 5", December 5, 1862, to a Mr. W. H. Jessup (possibly William H. Jessup of Montrose, Pennsylvania- a delegate to the Republic National Convention in 1860 and 1868). The amount of $3.00 was collected for 12 Cartes de Visite duplicates. The front of the document is signed "M. B. Brady / Jas. S. Dixon" by an associate; the docketing on the verso contains the authentic Brady signature. The document has had cellophane tape repairs that affect the "M" in the dark, bold Brady autograph, else good condition. An important and desirable signature for the Civil War or photography collector.
