CHURCHILL, Sir W.L.S, Franklin D. ROOSEVELT (1822-1945), Joseph STALIN (1879-1953) and others. Autograph signatures of Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill on a card with embossed, gilt United States Eagle, n.p. [?Tehran], n.d. [?28 November - 1 December 1943], inscribed in Churchill's hand 'For Nicholas [Eden, 2nd Earl of Avon]', 52 x 104mm;
backed on to a leaf of an album also containing the signatures of Jan Smuts (inscribed to Nicholas Eden), Ismet Inonu (on a place card for Anthony Eden, with United States eagle), V.M. Molotov, King George VI, Elizabeth, Queen of George VI, Dwight D. Eisenhower (cut signature), Archibald, 1st Earl Wavell, Eduard Benes (8 January 1944), Robert Menzies (1948), Clement Attlee, Ernest Bevan, also by figures of popular entertainment including Noel Coward, Maurice Chevalier, David Niven ('Niv the Spiv'), Cecil Beaton and others, a number on place-cards or fragments of paper, a number inscribed to Nicholas Eden;
the album 8°, original brown morocco by Webster's, gilt border on upper cover.
The proximity of the card signed by the three great World War II leaders to a similar card with the signature of the Turkish statesman Ismet Inonu suggests that it was signed at the Tehran Conference of 28 November - 1 December 1943: the Second Cairo conference, which Inonu, (but not Stalin) also attended, followed a few days later.
