Hand fan celebrating Col. Theodore Roosevelt of the 1st U.S. Volunteer Cavalry (Rough Riders), with advertising for an Albany, NY clothing store, Spanish-American War period, c. 1898. Features chromolithograph portrait of Roosevelt in uniform, flags and implements of war below. Verso, ad for Albany clothing store, indicating it was likely issued in conjunction with Roosevelt's run for New York governor, or immediately following his election. Light crease and wear at edges, mainly affecting right edge; displays excellent. Quite rare, first we've seen! One of our favorite TR items.
