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: 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
