Description

Recognized as the “Father of the Constitution” and the architect of the Bill of Rights, fourth U.S. President James Madison was also the author of this regal signature. Executed on crisp parchment outlining an 1814 land grant, Madison’s black-ink dip pen scripting projects (“6-7”) strength and clarity, showing very minimal fading despite its vintage of nearly 200 years. The rolled piece has compacting folds and is missing its original U.S. seal. LOA from John Reznikoff, University Archives. This item has a reserve (estimated value $500-$1000)
