About this Item

The first time the Henley Royal Regatta (begun in 1839) in Henley-on-Thomas, England was won by a non-Briton was when this 21-year-old American and a partner won the double sculls rowing event in 1927; in 1971, as president of Tedruth Plastics Corporation, he unveiled the world's first allurethane boat, a 10' craft that could be used as a sailboat, motorboat or rowboat and supposedly remained afloat even flooded with water and carrying four passengers. Signed first Day Cover, 6½" X 3½", cancelled at Washington, DC on November 2, 1967 and with "First Day of Issue" noted. Near fine. Single 5-cent "The Biglin Brothers Racing -- Thomas Eakins" stamp (depicting two rowers rowing) at upper right. No decorative cachet at left; no distracting recipient's name/address. Just left of the "sweet spot," Box signs large and bold in medium green marker. Quite unusual. Bookseller Inventory # 21359
