 FIRST EDITIONS--SIGNED & COLLECTIBLE LIMITED EDITIONS--



Author Name: Martin Luther King  Title: "Strength to Love"  (1963) Price  $6295.99

Don't wait until January to purchase a gift for that special someone in your life--not enough can be said about what Dr. King did for the Civil Rights movement. It is very rare to find a signed copy of this book in this kind of condition--and not inscribed to any particular person makes it ideal for a gift! This book (in less fine condition) has sold for over $12,000 in the past 5 years! This is a superb first print copy in fine condition in an unclipped and near fine dustjacket. This copy has been signed and inscribed "Best Wishes" by Dr. Martin Luther King and comes with an enclosed Certificate of Authenticity--serial number G21906--from AAU--signature verified authentic by a Board Certified Forensic Document Examiner. This copy comes from the collection of Caroline Riesor Rau & David Wallerstein. Wallerstein was one of Walt Disney's best friends and served on the Board of Directors of Paramount Pictures, McDonalds, ABC, and Disney. Wallerstein and his wife (Caroline Riesor) were from Chicago and were deeply involved in the Civil Rights movement of the 1960's--and Chicago is where Caroline met MLK. In this lovely book Dr. King discusses, among other things, "A Tough Mind and A Tender Heart", "On Being A Good Neighbor", "Loving Your Enemies", "What Is Man", "Our God Is Able" and "Pilgrimage To Nonviolence". Dr. King speaks with prophetic urgency from the depths of a deep and serene spirit---which, unfortunately, seems to mean just as much in 2016 as it did in 1963.
