Lot 165: Extremely rare ink signature, "Yours as ever, J. Wilkes Booth," on an off-white 4.75 x 2 slip. Affixed to a raised display, then triple matted and framed with an image of Booth, an artist's rendition of Ford's Theatre, a photo of the gun that killed Lincoln, and two plaques to an overall size of 34.25 x 33.5. Heavy vertical folds passing through the signature and some soiling, otherwise very good condition. An unusually large, bold example of this highly desirable historical autograph. Oversized.
