Portrait Print of Thomas Jefferson as Author of Declaration of Independence

Will Paulsen

M. H. Traubel

Large period engravings of Thomas Jefferson are rarely seen in the general market, yet the market seems to have an endless array of small engravings, almost all of which were cannibalized from books. In over forty years of collecting I have only acquired five large engravings. Amongst my collecting colleagues, I am unaware of anyone with more.

This is a lithograph signed as follows: “Lithy of M. H. Traubel & Co. 46 ½ Walnut St. Philada.” This piece is ex-collection of W. Groke Mickey, until his estate auction in 2009.

Groke was well known locally, having been as a U. S. Ambassador; president of Jefferson National Bank; and benefactor to Monticello. The image area is fine, but there is white residue along the top and bottom edges. Conservation framing is needed.
