    Herbert Hoover: Signed Inaugural Address and Post-Presidential Relics. This interesting lot includes: (1) A government-printed booklet of Herbert Hoover's 1929 inaugural address boldly signed "Herbert Hoover" on the cover (this was the first inaugural address to be recorded by newsreel cameras in sound); (2) An official program for the Inaugural Ceremonies (lightly soiled); (3) A reel-to-reel recording of Hoover's last speech given at the Dedication of his Presidential Library on August 10, 1962; and (4) A piece of "President Hoover's 88th birthday cake" contained in a blue, unused air sickness bag (the cake has crumbled and appears like a pumpkin cup cake in a paper doily... we didn't try it).

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
