Yat-sen, Sun (1866 – 1925)
A rare circa 1912 cabinet-style 3.5 x 5 albumen portrait of Sun Yat-sen affixed to its original 4.75” x 8.5” mount, boldly signed on the image in black ink, ‘Sun Yet sen’. Published by H. T. Thompson and housed in its original presentation folder. In very fine condition. As a revered political leader of the 20th century and the key figure in establishing the modern Chinese state, Sun Yat-sen represents one of the most highly sought-after autographs worldwide. Signed photographs are excessively rare.
