An 6" x 7-7/8" black-and-white silver print formal portrait by Yvonne, matted and framed to an overall size of 10" x 15," of Lewis on the day he left for his honeymoon with Dorothy Thompson, SIGNED by the photographer in red pencil beneath the image. Also INSCRIBED and SIGNED by Lewis on the mat to two lifelong friends: "To Frere & Tess/with the love/of Sinclair Lewis/New York/Jan. 10, 1930." Lewis characteristically dated the photo 1929 and then realized it was 1930--a common occurrence for him whenever inscribing in January. Booze exaggerated this habit. A bit of fading along the edges of the photograph. Near Fine, not examined out of the frame.
