Description

"One of the satisfactions of a career is to have people want to see how you sign your name"

American theoretical physicist (1918-1988) whose work in quantum electrodynamics earned him the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965; he is often credited for introducing the concept of nanotechnology, and is remembered for his unorthodox wit. ANS signed “Richard P. Feynman,” on a white double-weight 5.75 x 3.5 collector's card with raised borders, and a small image of Feynman affixed to the lower right corner. In full: "One of the satisfactions of a career is to have people want to see how you sign your name. Thank you, Mr. Harris, for your interest in me." Annotated with the date, "12/58" on the reverse. In very fine condition. Originally from the collection of Roger Harris, a collector who devoted much of his personal time to writing celebrities for their autographs, requesting a portrait and a signature, and asking what the signer's greatest satisfaction in life was. A highly desirable, early Feynman autograph pre-dating his Nobel Prize.
