Description


Chinese revolutionary (1866-1925) who helped to overthrow the centuries-old Qing Dynasty in 1911 to become the first president of the Republic of China. Rare German color 5.5 x 3.5 postcard of an artistic depiction of Potsdam's Sanssouci Palace and the front statue of Frederick the Great, signed along the top in black ink, "With many compliments of Sun Yat Sen." Addressed on the reverse in Sun's own hand, "Conrad W. Cooke Esq., Rothloy, Macaulay Road, Clapham Common, London, England." In fine condition, with some creasing to the left edge. Sun remains exceedingly rare across all signed formats, with this being only the fifth item we have ever come across.
