Collected in a small 4toAutograph Bookfilled with signatures and letters tipped to pages(some are glued and others are hinged with stamp hinges and easily removed to be mounted, displayed or sold separately). Included in these signatures are: Dukes of Abercorn, Beaufort, Fife, Grafton, Montrose, Ormand de Richelieu, Portland, and Richmond & Gordon; Marquesses of Abergavenny, Bath, Lansdown, Londonderry, Lothian, and Ripon; Earls of Airlie, Brownlow, Cairns, Carnarvon, Cathcart, Durham, Fitzwilliam, Granard, Kenmare, Lauderdale, Limerick, Londesborough, Longford, Malmesbury, Meath, Northbrook, Rosse, Tankerville, and Yarborough; Viscounts Bangor, Morley and Folkestone; Barons Acton, Aldenham, Ashbourne, Aveland, Basing, Brassey, FitzGerald, Edmond Fitzmaurice, Heytesbury, Methuen, Mowbray & Stourton, North, de Ros, Rowton, Wantage, and Winmarleigh; Archbishops of Canterbury (Edward Benson 1883-1896 and Frederick Temple 1896-1902), Dublin (WC Plunket), and York (William Thomson); Bishops of Lichfield (William Maclagen and Augustus Legge), Lincoln (Edward King), London (Arthur Ingram), Nova Scotia (John Inglis), Salford (Herbert Vaughan), Salisbury (John Wordsworth); Baronet Claud Hamilton, Lord Mark Kerr; and Francis Bertie, Arthur Bigge, GG Bradley, W.

Winton; with at least 26 additional signatures we have not positively identified. Book lacks spine and back cover, and a few pages are detached. Overall condition is good with the real value in the signatures. I have checked a few of them for value and the two (2) Archbishops for Canterbury are worth about $400USD each. Manysignatures are on paper and the paper is mounted with stamp hinges so it can easily be removed and sent to those wanting one or more of these signatures. Some signatures are glued into the book but they havea blank page behind them so signatures can be cut from the page and you will not damage signatures onthe back of the page. If you figure an average of just $20 per signature, plus the two Archbishops of Canterbury, you have about $3,000 in value in this book. Of course, the signatures and the 6 letters are probably worth a lot more than $20 each due to their age and rarety. Signatures can be removed and framed with a photographof the notableand sold individually as a revenue producer. Overall, a very nice collection with no smears and condition is very good considering the age.
