    Description

    RARE JULIA WARD HOWE SIGNED CABINET PHOTO (AUTHOR OF THE "BATTLE HYMN OF THE REPUBLIC"). A fine cabinet photo in Ex-Mt condition, inscribed and signed on the reverse: "Julia Ward Howe... Child of Margaret and Winthrop Chambers." The photo shows her fairly late in life holding a baby, and signed, in a different hand, "Beatrice Chambers." While Howe’s signature in other forms in only moderately scarce, it is extremely so on a photograph; the edition of the Sanders autograph guide we are using does not even quote a price, suggesting that they could find no published sale of a signed photo. A true piece of American history, which would be great to fame up along with a color Civil War song sheet of the "Battle Hymn." LOA from Spence/ Grad PSA DNA.
