European Jewish financier (1777-1836) who founded his family’s famous banking dynasty and handled Allied loans for the campaign against Napoleon. Rothschild helped to ensure Britain’s preeminence as a financial market when bonds he handled as an investment banker were denominated in sterling and the interest made payable to London in pounds. Among the powers availing themselves of the new arrangements was Czarist Russia, which floated a loan for £3,500,000 in 1822. Three-language partly-printed DS, signed “N. M. Rothschild,” one page both sides, 9.75 x 14.25, March 1, 1822. A Russian imperial bond for 720 rubles with 5% annuity. Signed in the upper right margin in ink by Rothschild. In very good to fine condition, with soiling, fold splits, and some paper loss to the left edge.
