(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $1,000.00
Sold Price: $20,656.25 (includes buyer's premium)


Chinese revolutionary leader and politician (1874-1916) who was a founder of the Kuomintang and served as the first army commander-in-chief of the Republic of China. Rare AQS in English on an off-white 5 x 8 sheet, signed and dated at the conclusion in ink, "Hwang Hsing, New York, Oct. 12th 1914." Huang pens an appropriately patriotic quote: "The aspirations of mankind is Liberty: And to defend it, is our sacred duty." In very good to fine condition, with a rectangular block of toning to the center. Huang penned this quote following his military exploits during the Xinhai Revolution, which toppled the Qing dynasty and ended 2,000 years of imperial rule in China. After failing in further rebellion efforts at Jiangsu in 1913, Huang fled to Japan and then went into exile in New York City in 1914. He returned to China after the death of Yuan Shikai in June 1916, but passed away from illness just four months later.
