British statesman, three times Prime Minister of Great Britain, from May 1923 to January 1924, November 1924 to June 1929 and from May 1935 to May 1937.

Baldwin’s administrations covered the General Strike of 1926 and the abdication of King Edward VIII, which he handled with tact and resolution.

Criticism of his failure to recognise the threat from Nazi Germany and his reluctance to rearm Britain’s defences brought his resignation in 1937.

He retired after the coronation of King George VI and was created Earl Baldwin of Bewdley.

This is a very fine signature in black fountain pen ink on a 4.5" x 3.5" Privy Council Office card. Heavy album remains to the reverse, not in any way affecting the fron. In good condition and perfect for display mounting.
