1832 Silk Broadside of "Washington's Farewell Address" Exceedingly Rare Not Recorded in "Threads of History"

1832 Rare Unlisted Vintage Silk Broadside Printing "Washington's Farewell Address," Framed, Very Good.

This original, historic Printed upon white Silk Broadside measures a large 21" x 16.5" and is mounted to an old card backing. It is framed behind glass in a slightly larger wooden frame. This is the first Printed Silk version we've seen or handled of this important broadside address, in which Washington bade farewell to his fellow-citizens in 1796. This important example was printed in 1832 in black ink on cream-colored silk which is toned overall with a light dampstain running 9.5" down the left margin does not affect legibility. There are some splits along the folds; one 7.5" horizon split affects several words and a small area of silk loss at center affects a few words. Also, a few faded spots are noted. Still, the appearance of this piece is impressive and would make a fabulous display piece of great historical import. This example is Not Recorded in the Smithsonian's comprehensive reference book, "Threads of History."
