Minimum Bid: $1,000.00
Sold Price: $13,316.98 (includes buyer's premium)


Scottish moral professor and a respected pioneer of political economy (1723-1790) whose magnum opus, The Wealth of Nations, is considered the first modern work of economics. Rare, prominent ink signature, "Adam Smith,” on an off-white 3.5 x .5 slip clipped from a letter. Handsomely mounted, suede-matted, and framed with a plaque and portrait to an overall size of 9.5 x 14. In fine condition, with a small edge tear beneath his first name. While we have offered Smith's letters in the past, this is the first clipped signature of the renowned economist that we have offered—an outstanding piece from a foundational intellectual.
