(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $5,095.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Signed book: Strength to Love. First edition. NY: Harper and Row, 1963. Hardcover with dust jacket, 6 x 8.5, 146 pages. Signed neatly on the first free end page in blue ballpoint, "Best wishes, Martin Luther King Jr." Autographic condition: fine. Book condition: VG/VG, with light scuffing and edgewear to the dust jacket. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from JSA.

Centered on the topic of racial segregation in the United States, Strength to Love was Dr. King's first volume of sermons, published the same year in which he penned his 'Letter from a Birmingham Jail' and delivered his famous 'I have a dream' speech at the historic March on Washington. A beautiful presentation copy of this significant work made all the more desirable by its crisp penmanship and lack of inscription.
