Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $3,750.00 (includes buyer's premium)


The autocratic leader (1912–1994) of North Korea from its establishment in 1948 until his death in 1994, known for establishing an all-pervasive cult of personality that has continued under his successors, Kim Jong-il and Kim Jong-un. Superlative ink signature of Kim Il-sung on a high quality off-white 7.25 x 4.75 sheet. Removably matted in corner mounts with a portrait to an overall size of 8.25 x 11.75. In very fine condition. Accompanied by an official letter and envelope from the Korean Society for Cultural Relations with Foreign Countries, dated January 6, 1974, in part: “We are pleased to have come to know who you are doing such a work as deepening the friendship and understanding between all the peoples by organizing various forms of exhibitions…We who are attached to the friendship and solidarity with many friends of the world hope to have close contacts with you in the days to come. Our people were imposed upon the 36 year-long slavish life under the Japanese imperial colonial rule…President Kim Il Sung, the respected and beloved leader of the Korean people has correctly organized and led the Korean revolution to victory…Some time ago, we sent you the ‘Brief History of the Revolutionary Activities of Comrade Kim Il Sung’ and some publications to help you in having understanding of our country.” An immensely desirable signature by the influential and controversial world leader. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
