Well-preserved unissued Jefferson-Madison partial ship’s papers

Partly-printed partial DS, signed “Th: Jefferson” as president and “James Madison” as secretary of state, one page, 8 x 15.5, no date but circa 1801–1809. The rightmost half of an unissued four-language ship’s paper, in English and Dutch, left blank and signed in advance by Jefferson and Madison. Handsomely double-matted and framed with engraved portraits of the eminent statesmen to an overall size of 26.75 x 22.5. Intersecting folds (horizontal folds passing through the top of Jefferson’s signature), and a repaired tear to the upper left corner, otherwise fine condition. An appealing example of this sought-after pair. Oversized. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
