    JAMES MADISON LAND GRANT.

    Madison, James (1751-1836) 4th President of the United States, considered the Father of the Constitution. He co-authored "The Federalist Papers" and the Bill of Rights. An unusual partial Document Signed "James Madison" as President, 11 1/2 x 9", December 29, 1816, conveying a parcel of land in Pittsburgh. Appears to have been slightly longer originally. The document has one clean split away from Madison's signature which is still dark and distinctive. The Presidential Seal is complete and still attached to the document. Except for moderate soiling and staining in the extreme margins of the document, it is still in very good condition.  Please note: Due to the size and/or weight of this lot, additional shipping costs may apply.
