An Engraving of the Statue of Liberty, Inscribed and Signed by Its Sculptor, Bartholdi
28/10/1886. Frederic Bartholdi One of the great American landmarks and the most inspiring symbol of American freedom ever erected, the Statue of Liberty greeted millions upon millions of immigrants to the Promised Land, from whom so many Americans today are descended. It was the embodiment of the words written on its base:“Give me your tired, your poor,Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”An uncommon 3 1/2 by 6 inch postcard of the statue, inscribed and signed, “With my thanks for your cordial congratulations, Bartholdi”. We obtained this recently in France.The inscription invites conjecture that this was signed in the wake of the dedication of the statue on October 28, 1886. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
