Four color plates and numerous in text illustrations in black and white by Arthur Rackham.

Binding rubbed, lightly scuffed, and sun faded.

    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.
