Presidential Signature Collection

The Presidential Signature Collection consists of a signature for each United States President, from George Washington to George W. Bush. This fine collection is framed in large folders of heavy, white, deckle-edged paper, one for each President, with his name, dates, number, and term handsomely written in a calligrapher’s hand, with red-and-blue trim. The signatures are on various types of documents.
