Signature and Inscription / Unsigned Photograph. Chauncey M. DEPEW.

Signature and Inscription / Unsigned Photograph.

The New York Central Railroad's president (1885-98) and chairman (1899-1928) is usually remembered as New York's powerful Republican senator (1899-1911). Handsome "April 13 1896 / Yours Truly / Chauncey M Depew" in brown ink in his usual hurried hand, heavy stock 3½" X 2½" card, n.p. Near fine. A terrific example, bold and nice. Comes with a nifty, pristine 5" X 8" sepia-tone printed photograph (bookplate, undated but ca. 1900) showing Depew half-length seated in a library, clutching an open book. Item #26958

Price: $55.00
