Item Description: June 15, 1951; September 18, Boston, 1952. The first is a 11" x 8½" T.L.s. to the Dean of the Boston University Graduate School, Charles W. Alter: "I have been accepted in Boston University Graduate School as a regular student and a candidate for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in the field of Systematic Theology. I am now interested in finding living accomodations on the campus.A single room would be preferable.I am also interested in applying for a graduate Fellowship." The request for accomodations is not a matter which was taken lightly. In 1965 King was quoted in the Boston Globe as saying, "I remember very well trying to find a place to live. I went into place after place where there were signs that rooms were for rent. They were for rent until they found out I was a Negro, and then suddenly they had just been rented." The second letter is a 9½" x 7¾" A.L.s. on a pre-printed Boston Graduate School "Petition to the faculty." 14 lines, approx. 110 words: "I am desirous of taking twelve hours towards the PhD degree this semester.At present I have completed twenty-eight hours towards the degree, and passed the French examination. I plan to take the German examination in October, 1952.For the past two years I have been a close student of German. In the light of thuis I am fairly certain that I can pass the examination." The letter is signed "Martin L. King, Jr. / Graduate Student.". Bookseller Inventory # 48093

Item Description: We do not recall ever seeing a more powerful statement in the hand of Dr. King having reached the market Martin Luther King, Jr. took much of his inspiration from the non-violent campaigns of civil disobedience of Gandhi and Henry David Thoreau. To him, this non-violent struggle was intertwined with the idea of freedom from oppression, and justice and equality under the law. Around these beliefs, King created the nationÕs most effective Civil Rights movement movement, one that greatly advanced the cause of equal rights and led to the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964. The idea of non-violence in pursuit of morality is forever tied to his legacy, and the legacy of the Civil Rights movement. It is one of the great and inspiring messages of the 20th century. With the goal of redeeming ÔÔthe soul of AmericaÕÕ through nonviolent resistance, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) was established in 1957 to coordinate the action of local protest groups throughout the South. King headed the group from its founding until his death in 1968. ÔÔThis conference is called,ÕÕ King wrote, ÔÔbecause we have no moral choice, before God, but to delve deeper into the struggleÑand to do so with greater reliance on non-violence.ÕÕIn the summer of 1967, William Ives, an African American supporter in Brooklyn, wrote to King, sending a donation of $20 for the SCLC and also $5 for KingÕs newly released book. He asked King to autograph him for it, which King did.Book signed, ÒWhy We CanÕt Wait,Ó no date but July-August 1967, inscribed to ÒWilliam M. Ives.Ó ÒIn appreciation for your support of the non-violent struggle for freedom and justice. Martin L. King Jr.ÓThis message must have moved its recipient. Ives has added an image of King at the beginning and also of his family members at the end. It is clear that this was a personally meaningful cause and treasured object of the Ives family.We do not recall ever seeing a more powerful statement in the hand of Dr. King having reached the market. Generally his quotations are typed out and signed.Less than one year later, King was dead by an assassinÕs bullet. Bookseller Inventory # 11052

Item Description: Harper & Brothers, New York, 1958. Hardcover. First edition. 230pp. Faint dampstain tidemark in the very upper margins of the pages and jacket flaps, just touching a few letters on the rear flap, but otherwise affecting no text, else very good in spine-faded, about very good dustwrapper with modest chips at the spine ends. Author's first book, the story of the Montgomery Bus Strike and the ensuing action surrounding it, written when he was 29 years old. Warmly Inscribed by Dr. King using most of the front fly: "To: Dr. John W. Davis, In appreciation for your great contribution to the world of education, your humanitarian concern, and your devotion to the cause of freedom and justice. Martin L. King, Jr." Dr. John Warren Davis was born in 1888 in Georgia, and was a member of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama, the same Church where Dr. King was first called to the ministry and helped to launch his career. In 1954 Dr. King accepted his first pastorate at Dexter. Dr. Davis was an associate of both Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Du Bois both of whom he met when he attended Morehouse College, and where he also taught. In 1919 he was named President of West Virginia State University, which had only 21 students - that number grew to 1900 by the time he left in 1953, and where he hosted virtually every important African-American luminary during that period. He was a keynote speaker, along with Thurgood Marshall at the 1955 convention of the American Teachers Association, and was a past President of the ATA, and also served in several capacities at the NEA, as well as being engaged with the National Science Foundation and NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund. The book *Black Colleges and Universities: Challenges for the Future* (Praeger, 1984) is dedicated to him. Boston University Special Collections apparently housed a mimeograph of Dr. Davis's order form for this copy of the book. Dr. King's admiration for Davis is palpable, and this book helps to shed some modest light on a relationship about which little seems to be known. Bookseller Inventory # 394202

Item Description: 1970. Hardcover. Autograph album. Oblong 12mo. Red leather album with "Autographs" in gilt on front board and blank pages. Each of the pages has been careful and artistically folded (as issued?), when a page was used it was unfolded. Ownership signature of Kira Vivian, daughter of Civil Rights pioneer C.T. Vivian, Blackstone Ranger, Freedom Rider, and one of the chief lieutenants of Dr. King during the Civil Rights Struggle. Inscribed by Kira Vivian to herself on the front fly, in girlish fashion. Leaves are creased where they've been unfolded, else condition overall is fine. Most of the signatures are directly on the pages of the album, a few inscriptions are tipped or laid in.Interspersed with a few autographs of the young teenage Kira's school friends are the Inscriptions and Autographs of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, John Lewis, Jesse Jackson, Andrew Young, Fanny Lou Hamer, Charles Billups, and James Bevel (Director of Direct Action and Director of Nonviolent Education of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and the Director of the Selma Movement). A visceral artifact of the struggle for Civil Rights, compiled at a time when the outcome was by no means assured. It would be difficult to capture the immediacy of the Movement so completely in a single object. Bookseller Inventory # 396289

Item Description: 1965. No Binding. Book Condition: Very Good. one page, typed, signed by King in blue ink, on the letterhead of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, with original mailing envelope. In very good, very clean and legible condition. Written to Dr. Vincenzo Lappiccirella, King regretfully declines an invitation for he and his wife to attend a conference on April 30 in Florence, Italy. King states that he had another engagement that day (see below). On April 30th King and SNCC¿s John Lewis announced that the two organizations, (SNCC and SCLC), would work cooperatively to implement programs designed to carry out a program of voter education and political organization across the South. This coordination followed up on the March 25th Selma to Montgomery March and was intended to create support for the Voting Rights Act of 1965, part of a consistent coordinated effort during the spring and summer of 1965 to push for passage of this crucial act. On June 15, 1965, King addressed the opening orientation session for student volunteers in Atlanta¿s Summer Community Organization and Political Education (SCOPE) Project of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). King told the assembled volunteers: ¿This generation of students is found where history is being made.¿ SCOPE took place during the summer of 1965, growing out of SCLC¿s participation in the Voter Education Project, the momentum following the Selma to Montgomery March, and SCLC¿s desire to highlight the voter registration process for blacks while the Voting Rights Act was pending before Congress. SCOPE was also inspired by the 1964 Freedom Summer, a Council of Federated Organizations initiative that mobilized hundreds of white college students to work in the South against segregation and black disenfranchisement. Despite promises that the Voting Rights Act would be enacted by June 1965, SCOPE began that summer as the bill wended its way through Congress. Its three objectives were local recruitment and community grass-roots organization, voter registration, and political education. Over 1200 SCOPE workers, including 650 college students from across the nation, 150 SCLC staff members, and 400 local volunteers, served in 6 southern states to register African Americans to vote. The Voting Rights Act was sent to Congress by President Johnson on March 17, 1965. The bill passed the Senate on May 26, 1965 (after a successful cloture vote on March 23), by a vote of seventy-seven to nineteen. The House was slower to give its approval. After five weeks of debate, it was finally passed on July 9th. After differences between the two bills were resolved in conference, the House passed the Conference Report on August 3, the Senate on August 4th. On August 6, 1965, President Johnson signed the Act into law with Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, and other civil rights leaders in attendance. SCOPE ended three weeks after the Act became law, King declared that the project¿s goals had been achieved and projected success in SCLC¿s future registration programs. Vincenzo Lappiccirella (Milan, May 28, 1907 ¿ Rome, December 27, 1966) was a political and partisan Italian, member of the Resistance during World War II. After the war he became a professor of literature and continued a lifelong pursuit of social justice. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # 029006

Item Description: Johnson Publishing Company, Inc, Chicago, 1964. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed on the front free endpaper, "To Officer Harry Scott With best wishes and great appreciation for your support Martin Luther King Jr." Light wear to the extremities and previous owner's name, near fine in a near fine dust jacket with a few small closed tears. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. This is the first example we have seen signed by Dr. King. Bennett has managed to "get inside Dr. King's skin" and walk around in his mind for awhile, thinking, feeling, hurting, and trembling from the heights as he looks down to see from here the man has come. He is able to relate with eloquence, thoroughness, force and passion of Martin Luther King Jr., a modern day Moses. "Lerone Bennett has succeeded in giving his readers an intimate look into the physical, mental, and spiritual growth of Dr. King" (Boston Globe). Bookseller Inventory # 5475

Item Description: The only signed copy of this religious work we have ever seenMartin Luther King, Jr. was an American Baptist minister, activist, humanitarian, orator, and leader and architect of the nonviolent Civil Rights movement, A Nobel Peace Prize laureate, King was among the twentieth centuryÕs most influential figures. King was also the author of several books, including Strength to Love, which was published in 1963 as a collection of his finest and best-known sermons, primarily on the topic of racial segregation in the United States. He originally proposed the book in early 1957, but initially found little time to submit a working draft to his publishers. King was finally able to start working on the sermons in July of 1962 while in jail during the Albany Movement. Having been arrested for holding a prayer vigil outside Albany City Hall, King and Ralph Abernathy shared a jail cell for 15 days that was, according to King, Òdirty, filthy, and ill-equippedÓ, and Òthe worse I have ever seen.Ó While behind bars, he was able to spend a fair amount of uninterrupted time preparing the drafts for the sermons ÒLoving Your Enemies,Ó ÒLove in Action,Ó and ÒShattered Dreams,Ó and continued to work on the volume after his release. King sent the first part of the manuscript to his publisher in the early fall 1962, and it included several sermons that had become King standards, such as ÒPaulÕs Letter to American ChristiansÓ and ÒWhat Is Man?ÓAs the first volume of sermons by an African-American preacher widely available to a white audience, Strength to Love was a landmark work and remains a concrete testament to KingÕs lifelong commitment to preach the social gospel. His fusion of Christian teachings and social consciousness remains in print and continues to promote KingÕs vision of love as a potent social and political force for change, the efficacy of religious faith in surmounting evil, and the vital need for true human integration, or, as he defined it, Ògenuine intergroup and interpersonal living.Ó This volume brought to the forefront KingÕs identity as a compelling, well educated, and compassionate preacher at a time when many whites knew him only as a civil rights leader.Book signed, Strength to Love, by Martin Luther King, Jr., inscribed to "Mrs. Blanche Pennington. With Best Wishes, deep respect, great admiration and warm Personal Regards. Martin Luther King, Jr." This is the only inscribed copy of Strength to Love we can recall seeing. The recipient was the mother of a woman friend of KingÕs, with whom he had an intimate relationship for years. Bookseller Inventory # 11112

Item Description: Harper & Row, USA, 1963. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. 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. A tight and clean copy in gift quality condition--no interior marks or writing--clean pages and page ends. Clean black boards and black cloth spine with gold lettering. 146 pp including 4 pp of source listing at the end relating to each of the chapters. 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 she was deeply involved in the Civil Rights movement of the 1960's--and Chicago is where she 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. The dustjacket is not price clipped --with the price of $3.50 on the front flap and only very shallow beginning of wear to the head and heel of the spine-without any resulting paper loss--as well as one closed end tear at the top front flap with only the slightest of paper loss at the tip. Little or no soiling to the almost white rear panel that includes critical blurbs of praise from Reverend James A. Pike and Norman Cousins. Dr. King, perhaps more than any American---within such a short time--made an everlasting contribution to the living history of our country and the world. This is the nicest quality signed copy we have seen. We purchase MLK books in fine condition. Inscribed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # cfe15358

Item Description: Brooklyn, NY: Powerhouse Books, 2007. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 250 pages. Published in 2007. Retrospective collection of portrait-photographs. One of the most beautiful photography books of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. An austerely elegant production by Yuko Uchikawa: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial hard boards with titles on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Steve Schapiro. The subjects are (breathtakingly) THE Who's Who icons of the 20th century. Text by David Friend. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper to the highest standards. In matching pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Steve Schapiro's "Heroes". An extended and intimate portrait gallery of several key figures who have helped shape and define the 20th century. "Brings together an extraordinary collection of stories in the photo-journalistic tradition of people who have shaped our lives, our politics, and our tastes by the celebrated Steve Schapiro. In behind-the-scenes photographs, we visit the young Muhammad Ali and his Monopoly set, followed everywhere by the neighborhood kids. Glimpse the warm family life and campaign of Robert Kennedy. See Andy Warhol in photographs never-before-published. Watch Ray Charles perform. Visit the set with Samuel Beckett. March alongside Martin Luther King, Jr. One of the most respected American documentary photographers, Steve Schapiro had a knack for being in the right place at the right time. His heroes are the iconic men and women who have influenced the political and cultural climate of our times. A rare and intimate glimpse of a major period of American history, photographed during the Golden Age of photojournalism by one of the major talents of the late-20th century" (Publisher's blurb). Fans will pore over these inimitable portrait albums of Barbra Streisand as well as James Baldwin, Jacqueline Kennedy as well as Truman Capote. And of course, the very best photographs ever taken of Andy Warhol and The Factory that are NOT taken by Warhol. An absolute "must-have" title for Steve Schapiro collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the title page by Steve Schapiro. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a late-modern photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with black-and-white plates. One of the finest American photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER STEVE SCHAPIRO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1576873781. Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 20274
