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 Chamber."  While Howe's signature in other forms is 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.

    You reach a customer base that is in many ways completely unknown to the major auction houses, and your marketing to this base is as professional as one could hope for. As I continue to wind down my holdings.
