Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #0004404: P.T. BARNUM

Scarce and eminently display-worthy vintage 4 x 5.75-inch sepia-tone semi-glossy portrait of the legendary showman, promoter and consummate scam artist, boldly signed in black fountain pen in 1888.  In fine condition, with a few minor surface marks and slightly irregular ink adhesion affecting several letters.  This image was autographed in the year he published his celebrated autobiography and merged with James Bailey to form the famed Barnum and Bailey Circus.
