    Elizabeth I, Queen of England Partial Document Signed. 7" x 6" (sight); no place, no date. Written in old French (untranslated), Elizabeth's large signature appears at the top of the document. An old catalog description that accompanies the document states that the content concerns an old political treaty which is to be signed, and directs an ambassador to be sent overseas. Also makes reference to ensuring the King's honor. The word "Roy" appears three times, as does the word "Ambassador" and "sea" are also present.

    Matted alongside an engraving of Elizabeth to an overall size of 22" x 16". Although a partial document, it presents as a whole; and is ideal for display. The last full document signed by Elizabeth I that we have handled sold in 2013 for $28,680.

    Condition: Gently toned, with a small tear at bottom. Document is affixed to the mat along top margin only.

    Fees, Shipping, and Handling Description: Flat Material, Large (view shipping information)

    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.
