EXTREMELY FINE. A RARE AND DESIRABLE COMPLETE PAGE FROM A ROOSEVELT PRESENTATION ALBUM WITH THE 1861 FIRST DESIGNS AND COLORS.

Most of the designs here are indistinguishable from the 1861 Second Design proofs (offered in the following lot) when cut down, and are therefore particularly desirable on the original page
