Signature and Salutation. Vicary GIBBS.

Signature and Salutation.

Known as "Vinegar" Gibbs for his sour rhetoric, this knighted (1805) English jurisprudence figure was a barrister, member of Parliament for Great Bedwyn, attorney general and privy counsellor. Signature and salutation (presumably from the close of an ALS), 4½" X 3", n.p., n.y. Very good. Laid to a heavy album leaf of same size. "with great respect / Sir / yr most obedt / humble servt / V. Gibbs." Below this another hand identifies Gibbs and dates this to 1809. Attractive. Item #20947

Price: $50.00
