Uncommonly early inscribed black fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch mustard yellow album page, acquired in-person in 1932 and decorated with a small magazine image. In good condition for its age, with a square-shaped block of toning in the bottom left-hand area, behind the writing, and some gentle show-through from the autograph on the opposite side.
