King Edward VII signs an envelope.
Autograph Envelope signed: "A.E." [Albert Edward] as Prince of Wales, 4¾x3, affixed to 11x9½ sheet. Royal seal, possibly from back flap, affixed at upper portion. Addressed by Prince Albert to: "Miss Cadogan/104. Piccadilly". Typed caption beneath envelope. Newspaper article from the August 19, 1979 issue of "The Sunday Telegraph" affixed beneath envelope. Titled: "Ugly Ducking into Swan-King". Subtitled: "Edward VII: A Portrait". Ink notes (unknown hand) beneath article. Imprinted information on the Cadogans has been affixed at upper right of the sheet. A question mark has been written next to one of the names, likely in an attempt to determine the possible recipient. King Edward VII (1841-1910), the eldest son of Queen Victoria, was 59 when his mother died and he ascended to the throne. During his short reign (1901-1910), he promoted international amity by visiting European capitals, preparing the way for treaties of arbitration. Albert, despite being Hanoverian, took the family name of his father, Prince Consort Albert. His appearance as a witness in a divorce suit in 1870 resulted in a scandal (he was 29 and had been married to Princess Alexandra of Denmark since 1863) and his exclusion from the government by his mother, the Queen. Envelope is lightly creased, heavily soiled (all writing legible). 1-inch diagonal tear through seal (paper intact). Mounting sheet is lightly creased. 3 file holes at blank right margin, light stains at upper and lower file holes. Chipped at blank right edge. Collector's name written in ink at upper right margin. Overall, fine condition.
