    Unique Carl Sandburg, 1940, Election-eve Radio Broadcast Script, about Lincoln, Inscribed to Fellow FDR Campaigner, Joan Bennett, Actress

    Measuring 5.5" x 8.5", cover page and two typed pages of text. Appears to be mimeographed, and probably had very limited distribution. This particular copy, which may well be the one from which Sandburg read, was given to Bennett, who also participated in the program, and is inscribed on the front cover: "For my fellow campaigner Joan Bennett, with salutations to her deep sincerity - Carl Sandburg".

    Sandburg recites some anecdotes about Lincoln, and draws parallels to FDR, concluding with an appeal to independent voters. A great item for those interested in Sandburg, Lincoln, and FDR! Very Fine. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.

    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.
