Allen St. John, orange cloth with black titles, 12mo (5.25" x 7.75"), fine in a fine jacket. The dust jacket does show a certain amount of restoration, especially to the top edge and spine.

    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.
