DS as president, one page, 8 x 10, Executive Mansion letterhead, January 31, 1853. Document presented to F. Emerson of Boston, informing him that a jury with "the Exhibition of the Works of All Nations, at London, in the year 1851, in consideration of your having exhibited specimens of ship ventilators - has awarded you an Exhibitor's Medal, Certificate and a copy of the Reports of the Juries." Signed at the conclusion by Fillmore, and countersigned by Chairman of the Executive Committee Peter Force. In very good to fine condition, with splits to the ends of the intersecting folds, two of which are repaired with old tape on the reverse.

The Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of all Nations was held in the Crystal Palace in Hyde Park, London, from May 1 to October 15, 1851. It was the first international exhibition of manufactured products and was enormously influential in the development of many aspects of society including art and design education, international trade and relations, and even tourism. The Exhibition also set the precedent for the many international exhibitions which followed during the next hundred years
