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. Incredibly rare circa 1912 cabinet-style 3.5 x 5 albumen portrait of Sun Yat-sen affixed to its original 4.75 x 8.5 mount, boldly signed on the image in black ink, “Sun Yet sen.” Published by H. T. Thompson and housed in its original presentation folder. The photograph itself is in fine, essentially flawless condition; the presentation folder is worn, with tears to its inner tissue, not affecting the rare signed photo whatsoever. As a revered political leader of the 20th century and the key figure in establishing the modern Chinese state, Sun Yat-sen represents one of the most highly sought-after autographs worldwide. Signed photographs are excessively rare, with this representing only the fourth we have ever offered.
