FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT

Vintage 8.6 x 11.4 matte finish black and white chest-up portrait as President, by Ernest Bachrach, signed and inscribed to the bottom border in black fountain pen, “For [indecipheraable] Howard/from Franklin D. Roosevelt.”  Fine condition, with a small tear and faint handling bends in the right border; tiny surface impressions in the background at the top edge; a mild horizontal bend running from the background into his left arm above the elbow, barely visible when the photograph is viewed head on; and the inscription faded and somewhat difficult to read.
