Queen of Great Britain and Ireland (born 1819) from 1837 until her death in 1901. Her more than 63 years on the throne remains unmatched in the history of Great Britain and ranks her among the longest-reigning monarchs of any nation in modern times. The unprecedented growth and prosperity of the British Empire under her rule—as well as a strangely prescient public fascination with the queen and her family—made her one of the most celebrated public figures of her day, and her name would become synonymous with an entire age. Manuscript DS, signed “Victoria R,” one page both sides, 7.5 x 12.5, December 28, 1848. A document approving the appointment of Spencer N. Dickson as Consul in London for the Republic of Chile. Countersigned at the conclusion “Palmerston.” The embossed paper seal remains intact at top left. In very good condition, with trimming as noted, intersecting folds, mild wrinkling, a touch of mild soiling and toning (tiny spots near signature), and slight blotting to a few letters of signature. R&R COA.
