Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $532.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Short story writer born William Sydney Porter (1862–1910) known for his use of the surprise ending. Uncommon pencil signature, “Very truly, Sydney Porter, 28 West 26th St, Phone 2031 Madison,” on an off-white 3.75 x 3.5 slip clipped from the close of a letter, affixed to another slip of the same size. Double-matted and framed with a photo of the author lounging on his side to an overall size of 10.25 x 17. In very good to otherwise fine condition, with partial separation to horizontal folds (one passing through three letters of the signature), uniform toning, and three areas of surface loss to irregularly trimmed edges. A remarkable and seldom-seen instance of the American scribe’s given name. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
