Paperback. 194 pages. Dimensions: 10.9in. x 8.4in. x 0.6in.The collecting of autographs of American presidents is done with a passion that is not found about similar figures in other countries. Canadian prime ministers or Finnish presidents are not the focus of hobbyists. The enthusiasm of getting a set of presidential signatures is something of a comment on the energetic American historical emphasis on the countrys chief executives. Even in George Washingtons time there were forgers who allegedly would produce a Washington letter for a drink at a tavern, so the authenticity of Presidents is a subject marked by intrigue and misadventure. Paul C. Richards scarce volume is a useful guide to a subject marked by increasingly high prices in the auction rooms. He was a great benefactor of Boston University, where his Robert Frost and Theodore Roosevelt collections are a permanent testimony to his relentless searching of attics and garrets and shrewd purchases.

About this title

Synopsis:

The collecting of autographs of American presidents is done with a passion that is not found about similar figures in other countries. Canadian prime ministers or Finnish presidents are not the focus of hobbyists. The enthusiasm of getting a set of presidential signatures is something of a comment on the energetic American historical emphasis on the country's chief executives. Even in George Washington's time there were forgers who allegedly would produce a Washington letter for a drink at a tavern, so the authenticity of Presidents is a subject marked by intrigue and misadventure. Paul C. Richards’ scarce volume is a useful guide to a subject marked by increasingly high prices in the auction rooms. He was a great benefactor of Boston University, where his Robert Frost and Theodore Roosevelt collections are a permanent testimony to his relentless searching of attics and garrets and shrewd purchases.

About the Author:

Dr. Paul Rich is a member of the Manuscript Society and life member of the Organization of American Historians, the American Historical Association, and the Historical Society. At the headquarters of the Policy Studies Organization in Washington, which has strong connections with the family of President James Garfield, he has gathered a unique collection of Garfield material as well as of leading figures in American political science. He believes that eventually such materials need to find their way into public access so that researchers have ready use of them, and has donated original material to Dartmouth College, the Essex Institute, Eton College, Harvard, and elsewhere.
