[Washington]: (S.n.), 1908. Broadside. 16" x 19" Near Fine. Beautiful official document with engraved illustrations, partially printed on vellum with remainder of form accomplished by hand. Normal bits of rippling to edges of vellum sheet.
This commission appointed Alva B. Court an Assistant Naval Constructor with the rank of Lieutenant, junior-grade, in the U.S. Navy. Theodore Roosevelt remains one of America's most popular presidents, even after more than a century since leaving office, and this is a very handsome official document signed by him in that capacity.
