Lot 256: Color satin-finish 8 x 11 photo of the justices inside an impressive area of the Supreme Court, affixed to a 10 x 13.5 mount, signed on the mount in various inks by all nine justices: Earl Warren; Hugo L. Black; William O. Douglas; Tom C. Clark; Potter Stewart; William J. Brennan, Jr.; John M. Harlan; Byron R. White; and Abe Fortas. Matted to an overall size of 15.5 x 19. In very good condition, noticeable creases to the upper left of the mount and lower right of the photo, subtle fading to the color image, and a few signatures light but legible (Warren, Brennan, and Fortas are particularly light, while Clark and Stewart are especially bold). This photograph was taken by the National Geographic Society while these nine justice presided over the Court, and is a highly desirable fully signed example, infrequently seen in this large format.
