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.

    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.
