Printed pages with hand-written notes by Biseo, documenting multiple flights flown by Mussolini (several entries state "Duce") and members of the Mussolini family. Biseo was Mussolini's favorite pilot during this period. Official picture of Major Biseo mounted on the identification page at the front.

    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.
