HIRAM S. MAXIM
The inventor pens his name on this slip of paper in black ink
Signature: "Hiram S. Maxim" in black ink, 4¼x2½. Hiram Stevens Maxim (1840-1916) invented the Maxim automatic machine gun (1884, adopted by the British Army in 1889) and built a plane operated by steam engines (1894). Born in Sangersville, Maine, he became a British citizen in 1900 and was knighted in 1901. Maxim was the father of Hiram Percy Maxim (1869-1936), who invented silencers for explosive weapons and gasoline engines, and the brother of Hudson Maxim (1853-1827), also a military inventor, who worked with explosives. Lightly creased, light diagonal crease at signature. Ink blot at the lower portion of the "m" in Hiram. Otherwise, fine condition.
