Fully signed by JFK, RFK and the cabinet within a week of taking office
Description  

Exceptional glossy 6.25 x 8 composite photo of Kennedy bordered by images of his cabinet, presented in an off-white 11 x 13.5 mat, signed on the mat in fountain pen by all pictured: John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, Robert S. McNamara, Dean Rusk, Orville L. Freeman, Luther H. Hodges, C. Douglas Dillon, Stewart L. Udall, Arthur J. Goldberg, Abraham A. Ribicoff, and J. Edward Day. Includes the original letter of transmittal by Priscilla Wear from the president’s office on White House letterhead, dated January 26, 1961, just six days after Kennedy’s inauguration. Archivally double-matted and framed with the letter to an overall size of 15.75 x 27.75. Professionally restored tears to mat (including a repaired vertical tear at the bottom of the mat passing through the second letter of JFK’s last name), and various creases and wrinkles to the mat, otherwise fine condition. Kennedy had been inaugurated on January 20, giving a speech now famous for the line, ‘ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country,’ and formally nominated his cabinet later that day. On the 21st, he hosted the swearing-in of his cabinet, comprised by a mixture of experienced and inexperienced public officials. Featuring the scarce combination of the president and his full cabinet, this remarkable piece was signed at a definitive moment in American political history. Oversized. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
