Founding father and first president of the Republic of China (1866-1925). Ink signature in English and Chinese on a 5 x 1.75 slip affixed to a 7.5 x 6.25 album page, which also bears two additional affixed signatures. In fine condition. Sun's term as president was quite brief, as he resigned less than three months after taking office due to pressure from the Imperial army. A very rare offering from one of the greatest and most widely revered leaders of modern China.
