BONNER (1824-99) SIGNED SLIP, "compliments of Robert Bonner." 3 x 1.5, by the American publisher, now best known for the New York Ledger, a weekly story newspaper; famous trotting horse Dexter; prominent supporter of Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church in New York City. In 1856 he became interested in horses and, in particular, the "trotting" form of harness racing. He paid large sums for his horses; one of the most famous was Dexter, a gelding. There was a rivalry between Bonner and Commodore Vanderbilt over who had the best horses. In fine condition, with age toning and light stains on left edge.
