Item 570 - Edgar Allan Poe Catalog 487 (Nov 2016)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $1,000.00
Sold Price: $13,488.48 (includes buyer's premium)


Exceedingly rare ink signature, “With high respect & esteem, Yr. ob. svt., Edgar A. Poe,” on an off-white 3.75 x 1.25 clipped slip. Affixed to a same size slip and in very good condition, with show-through from toned adhesive residue to reverse; the signature itself is mostly unaffected. Previously sold by Leon Becker and accompanied by the original frame’s backing, retaining Becker’s labels and an affixed label reading, “From the collection of Alice Cooper.” A tremendously desirable example of what may be the most prized signature in all of American literature. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
