George Canning [facsimile signature].
Blind-embossed card. Sheet 280 x 220mm, 11 x 8½" Some spotting.
An blind-embossed (i.e. no ink) portrait of George Canning (1770-1827), prime minister for only 119 days in 1827, dying in office. The decorative border (also embossed, as is the signature), suggests this is a posthumous memorial.
