This alphabetical archive of some of our sold items contains good examples of the autographs of the listed personalities.  We list items here that we think are particularly helpful and include one or more scans of each piece.  The descriptions, especially for letters, generally contain information regarding the historical context of the item—so there is a lot of good history here as well.  We hope that you find the archive useful.

Use this archive, too, to get ideas for your own collection or for the wonderful gifts that historical autographs, and particularly framed items, can be.  Most of the framed pieces shown below are History In Ink Framed Originals.  The matted pieces have the same distinctive quality but were not framed.
