THOMAS JEFFERSON (1743 - 1826) Third President of the United States, author and signer of the Declaration of Independence, ceased the importation of slaves to America. Partly-printed D.S. "Th: Jefferson" as President, 1p. folio, [Washington, n.d. but undoubtedly as President], a four-language ship's paper signed in blank, co-signed by Secretary of State and future president, JAMES MADISON. With embossed paper seal affixed at left. Significant paper loss at side margins had been very professionally filled as has three very small areas along one fold, leaving the document still very appealing with signatures totally unaffected.
Estimate $ 4,000-5,000
