Extraordinary oversized vintage matte-finish 8.5 x 10.75 photo of Chiang Kai-Shek in uniform, affixed to its original 11.25 x 14.5 mount, boldly signed and inscribed on the mount in ink by Chiang Kai-shek. An English inscription in the lower border, penned in another hand, reads: "To Mr. Charles Clason, Nanking, 1947." In fine condition, with a strip of toning along the top edge, and a trivial stain to the bottom edge. A superlative portrait of the Chinese leader, scarce in this large-format size.
