Mark Twain Framed Photo & Signature Presentation

Mark Twain Framed Photo & Signature Presentation
Mark Twain Framed Photo & Signature Presentation

This incredibly rare photo presentation includes a 2-3/4" x 4-1/2" off-white sheet handsomely signed by Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens) in black steel tip pen. The signed sheet is in fine overall condition, and authenticated and encapsulated by PSA/DNA.  Also included in the presentation is a photo of the famed author.  Samuel Clemens signing as his pen name "Mark Twain" is more rare and has more value than that of a "Samuel Clemens" signature.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens is better known by his pen name Mark Twain. One of the most famous authors and humorists, he wrote the Adventures of Tom Sawyer.  However, Twain's sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, has been often called "The Great American Novel". The setting of both novels was inspired by Twain's upbringing in Missouri.  Other ideas for his writing came from his previous jobs as a printer, miner, and riverboat captain.  Notably, his time as a riverboat captain gave him his pen name, Mark Twain, from "mark twain," the cry for a measured river depth of two fathoms.

Beyond his writing, Twain had a passion for science and technology, patenting three inventions.  He spent much time with his friend Nikola Tesla in Tesla's laboratory.  Twain was also fond of Thomas Edison. Edison himself once visited Mark Twain and filmed him for use in a short-film.  This passion for science is said to have inspired his novel "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court", which featured a time traveler.

Mark Twain has been praised among all else for his wit and satire and has been often called the "greatest American humorist of his age". This fine framed piece is perhaps the most rare item you can add to any collection.
