Vintage 7 x 9.5 double-weight glossy black and white studio portrait of Gielgud in a contemplative pose, signed and inscribed in blue fountain pen, “To Neville/with my best wishes/John Gielgud/July 1942.”  Fine condition, with mild bends to the right corner tips; and a faint vertical handling bend in the background along a portion of the right edge, The aforementioned flaws detract only slightly from overall appearance.
