    Exceptional Autograph Book Signed by President Grant and Others, published by J. P. Lippincott & Co., Philadelphia, approximately 180 pp., 8vo (9" x 6"), tooled gilt leather covers with gilt page ends. Front endpaper with later pencil inscription as follows: "Compiled Jan - March 1874 / 6 - U.S. Grant & Cabinet / 9 - Supreme Court Justices / c66 - Senators / c271 - Representatives...Over 350 autographs of the executive, judicial, and legislative branches of the U. S. Gov." The President's bold "U. S. Grant" leads this impressive array of autographs. A thorough inventory of the signatures will surely yield many names of Civil War and Reconstruction luminaries. Chipping to cover's extremities, some loss to spine, light staining to endpapers, internally fine.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
