Lot 10

Handsome partly-printed vellum DS, signed "Th: Jefferson" as president and "James Madison" as secretary of state, one page,11.5 x 17.75, no date but circa 1801–1809. Unissued scallop-top ship's pass, left blank and signed in advance by President Jefferson and Secretary of State Madison. The white paper seal affixed to the lower left remains intact. In very good to fine condition, with heavy intersecting folds, and both signatures light but entirely legible. These documents were often left blank and signed in advance before being sent out to American ports, where they were filled out as needed. An exceedingly desirable pairing of founding fathers in an attractive format featuring a beautiful, large seascape vignette.

Estimate: $4000-$5000
