Signed Postal Cover / Autograph Letter Signed.

Noted Virginia artist-historian often associated with Mount Vernon and designer of the 1949 U.S. air mail stamp celebrating Alexandria's 200th birthday. Signed Postal Cover, 6½" X 3½", n.p., n.y. Single 6-cent "Alexandria, Virginia, Bicentennial" stamp at upper right. Fine. NOT a First Day Cover. At lower left, in bold black ink, Bailey signs. Accompanied by an ALS, 1p, 8½" X 11", Alexandria, Virginia, 1970 February 14. Addressed to Paul Johnston. Near fine. Good content concerning this stamp, reading in part: "One might safely say that the concept and substance of the stamp was a case of design by committee; that it had something to say, however, is gratifying in the way you are using graphic materials to illuminate American history. Both buildings, I am happy to report, still survive despite a brush with urban renewal...." With original envelope. Nifty bit of postal history. Item #25520
