Item Details
Description
Judah P. Benjamin Signature Handsomely Presented, Ex-Charles Hamilton Autographs

A paper fragment signed and inscribed by Judah P. Benjamin (1811-1884), a Louisiana politician and Confederate secretary, as "I cheerfully join / in this recommendation / J P. Benjamin." The piece of pale blue, blue-lined paper has been laid down on a floating oblong mount near bottom. Located above this is a color print of Benjamin after an original iconic photograph taken by Julian Vannerson, ca. 1859. Framed behind glass. Not examined out of frame. The paper fragment measures 2.75" x 1.75" while the overall framed size is 6.375" x 8.25" x .75." A Certificate of Authenticity from Charles Hamilton Autographs, Inc. (New York, New York) is found verso, along with an embossed red wax seal depicting the company name and company logo of a hand holding a quill and an inkwell.

Judah P. Benjamin was the first man of Jewish heritage and faith to be elected to the U.S. Senate, and the first to hold a cabinet-level position in the Confederate States of America. A lawyer, planter, and slavery advocate, Benjamin represented Louisiana in the U.S. Senate between 1853-1861. President Jefferson Davis appointed Benjamin 1st Confederate Attorney General in February 1861, moved him to head the War Department in September 1861, and finally assigned him to the State Department in March 1862. As Secretary of State for the Confederacy, Benjamin attempted to gain recognition for the Confederacy abroad.

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
