Title: Signed First Day Cover / Unsigned Photograph...
Signed: Signed by Author(s)
Considered one of the founders of the United Nations, this Philippine journalist, diplomat and statesman was the first Asian to serve as president of the U.N. General Assembly (1949-50) and the first Asian to win a Pulitzer Prize in journalism (1942); he served in the cabinet under eight Philippine presidents and as that country's ambassador to the U.N. and to the U.S. Signed First Day Cover, 6½" X 3½", cancelled in New York, NY on 20 November 1970 and with "First Day of Issue" marked. Fine. Single 6-cent "United Nations 25th Anniversary" at upper right. No ornamental cachet at left; no distracting recipient's name/address. Near the center "sweet spot," Romulo signs boldly in full in black fountain pen. Original transmittal envelope present. Accompanied by a superb and choice glossy 8½" X 6½" news agency photograph (International News Photo) from 1945. Near fine. Captioned "Philippine Delegates Sign World Charter" on the mimeographed descriptive text (still attached on verso), it's a group portrait showing a seated Philippine official signing an official document surrounded by a group that includes the U.S. Undersecretary of State. Standing prominently alongside the signer is Romulo, then Resident Commissioner of the Philippines. A handsome signed FDC and a desirable vintage photograph. Bookseller Inventory # 28707
