RR Autograph Auctions Ambrose Bierce

American writer (1842–c.1914) best known for his vivid short stories (including the classic ‘An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge’) and his satirical ‘The Devil’s Dictionary.’ In 1913, while traveling with Pancho Villa’s troops during the Mexican Revolution, Bierce disappeared, his ultimate fate remains a mystery. Original 4 x 6.25 cabinet photo by Blakesly’s Elite Studions of California, signed and inscribed on the reverse in black ink “Forrest Crissey Esqr., Compliments of Ambrose Bierce.” In very good condition, with scattered light toning and soiling to reverse, some light spotting and surface marks to image, and a pencil sizing notation to lower border. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
