Lot 182: American inventor, entrepreneur, and founder of the Eastman Kodak company (1854–1932) whose invention of roll film helped revolutionize photography. Distinguished vintage matte-finish 6.25 x 9 half-length portrait of Eastman, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, "To my friend, Mary McBain, George Eastman." Housed in its original Arthur Studios of New York presentation folder. Light scattered creasing and soiling, some slight silvering, and fair contrast to the signature against the dark background, otherwise fine condition.
