    Description

    Thomas Edison Signed Engraving. 7.25" x 10.75". Undated. An engraving of Edison by Harry LeRoy Taskey. Signed adding a sentiment, on the bottom margin: "I trust you for progress. Thomas A. Edison." The engraving was obtained by our consignor along with lots 47197-47206 in this auction, from an estate in New Jersey which included many personal papers and belongings of Edison's son Charles, making it likely that this engraving was presented by Thomas Edison to his son.

    Condition: Mounting remnants along top on verso, resulting in some showthrough on front.
