Appealing 12 x 18 print of Franklin D. Roosevelt's first inaugural address on March 3, 1933, printed by Walters & Mahon, Inc., New York. The print features a patriot portrait of FDR at the top, and features the text of the historic address in a calligraphic font. The address is best known for the quote: "So first of all let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself—nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance. In every dark hour of our national life a leadership of frankness and of vigor has met with that understanding and support of the people themselves which is essential to victory. And I am convinced that you will again give that support to leadership in these critical days." Framed to an overall size of 14 x 20.25. In fine condition.
