#180 - Martin Luther King, Jr. Signed Book Estimate: $12,000+

Signed advance review edition of Stride Toward Freedom—Dr. King's first book

Signed book: Stride Toward Freedom: The Montgomery Story. First edition. NY: Harper & Brothers, 1958. Hardcover with dust jacket, 5.75 x 8.25, 230 pages. Signed and inscribed on the first free end page in blue ballpoint, "To: Harold Isaacs, With best wishes and warm personal regards, Martin L. King, Jr." Included are a Harper & Bros. advance review copy slip and publicity portrait. Autographic condition: fine. Book condition: VG/VG, with some foxing and edge nicks to the dust jacket.

Published in 1958, King's first book, Stride Toward Freedom: The Montgomery Story, chronicles the planning, events, and aftermath of the first successful large-scale application of nonviolent resistance, the year-long Montgomery bus boycott. A comprehensive and insightful account, the book traces the journey of a community and highlighted King's transformative devotion to equality and non-violence. An outstanding, very early signed volume from the Civil Rights icon.
