ZAHEDI, Fazlollah (1892-1963) Iranian Prime Minister who replaced his predecessor on 19 August 1953, through a coup d’├ętat supported by the U.S. and United Kingdom. He graduated from the Iranian Military Academy in 1916. Following the forced abdication of Reza Shah in 1941, the British believed he was planning an uprise in cooperation with German forces. He was arrested and in his bedroom and was found a German made automatic weapons and opium. He was flown out of the country and was turned over Palestine. In 1945 he returned to Iran and became head of the Police Forces. Very scarce typed letter signed, just weeks after becoming Prime Minister. Written in French to a collector in Germany very nicely thanking him for his letter of 18 August 1952 upon his appointment of Prime Minister. In addition, he will be sending a photograph for his correspondents’ collection. Boldly signed “F. Zahedi” Premier Ministre. V/G to near fine condition Anything signed by Zahid can be considered scarce especially as Prime Minister. Together with a fabulous photo of Zahid, 6.5”x8.5” in formal dress. One crease running from left to right probably from being mailed......................$225.00
