Premier of China (1860–1929); he was in office in both 1917 and 1922. Exceptional matte-finish 7.25 x 9.5 Maull & Fox photo, boldly signed in black ink on the image in English, “Wang Tahsieh,” and again on the mount in Chinese. Reverse of photo bears an official photographer’s label from Maull & Fox of Piccadilly, London. In fine condition, with a small speck of toning above image, and some adhesive remnants to borders of reverse. Maull and Fox, in business from 1879–1885, was a British photography company specializing in portraits of noted individuals: the studio’s time period definitively dates Wang’s age in this photo to between 19 and 25. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
