WARD BOND (4)

Vintage 8×10 matte finish black and white chest-up studio portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in turquoise fountain pen, “To Mary + Frank/Best Wishes/Ward Bond.”  Near fine condition, with mild waviness along the edges; scattered extremely mild handling bends; and areas of mild surface paper loss in three borders, with a few dots of paper loss in the background above his head and two dots at the top of his hair, noticeable but only very slightly detracting from overall appearance, and visible in the accompanying scan.
