Minimum Bid: $500.00
Sold Price: $6,875.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Exceptionally rare folding brochure for the Lincoln Memorial, eight pages, 6 x 8.5, dated 1962, issued by the United States Department of the Interior, and signed vertically on the front cover in blue ballpoint, “Martin Luther King.” The brochure offers information on the building, murals, and statue, background on construction and architecture, and includes images of Lincoln’s Gettysburg and Second Inauguration Addresses engraved on the memorial’s north and south walls. Scattered overall creasing, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the original recipient, “I...went to the March on Washington in 1963 as a 6 year old with my family. We had the honor of meeting Dr. King the day after the March when we went sightseeing at the Lincoln Memorial.”

On August 28, 1963, King and several other civil and economic rights leaders undertook the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, an unprecedented demonstration that saw over 250,000 participants join the mile-long walk from the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Memorial. As the event’s closing speaker, King famously delivered his ‘I Have a Dream’ speech, an oration which palpably expressed the country’s manifest need for racial equality. Signed by King a mere day after the rally—at virtually the same site as his iconic speech—this remarkable brochure commemorates two of the most influential civil rights champions of the 19th and 20th centuries: Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
