Lot 223: Early mounted 7.25 x 11.75 albumen portrait of Edison affixed to its original 7.5 x 12.75 mount, signed at the bottom of the image in black ink, "Thomas Edison." In very good condition, with heavy chipping to mount edges, areas of dampstaining to image (not affecting the face or signature areas), and some surface loss to the upper portion of the photo. Oversized photos of Edison from this early period are not often encountered and this boasts a beautiful, bold example of his iconic 'umbrella' signature.
