    Richard Nixon: Signed Copy of His 1973 Inaugural Address. (Washington D.C.: U.S. Government Printing Office, January, 1973), 7 pages, staplebound in wrappers, 5.75" x 7.75". Signed "Richard Nixon" on the front cover. President Nixon delivered his second inaugural address on January 20, 1973, just five days after suspending offensive action in North Vietnam. A week later, on January 27, Nixon announced the end of American involvement in Vietnam with the signing of the Paris Peace Accords. What was surely a successful couple of weeks surrounding Nixon's second inaugural came crashing down later in 1973 when the president's involvement in the Watergate cover-up became public knowledge. The copy of the second inaugural address presented here is in fine condition, with no noticeable flaws. It is housed in a blue display folder with gilt spine titles, which is in turn stored in a beautiful custom quarter leather slipcase with gilt spine lettering, five raised spine bands, and marbled boards.

    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.
