#4099 - Harry S. Truman Signed Book: 'Inaugural Address' Estimate: $200+

Custom-bound booklet containing the text of President Harry S. Truman's inaugural address given on January 20, 1949, signed on the first page in fountain pen, "Harry S. Truman, Signed 6/10/61." Hardcover bound in navy blue cloth with gilt lettering, 6 x 9.25, six pages. In fine condition, with a "Library of Lawrence E. Miller" blindstamp to a rear page. Truman's inaugural address, known as the 'Four Point Speech,' focused on American foreign policy in the aftermath of World War II and nascent stages of the Cold War: he promised to 'give unfaltering support to the United Nations,' 'continue our programs for world economic recovery,' 'strengthen freedom-loving nations against the dangers of aggression,' and 'embark on a bold new program for making the benefits of our scientific advances and industrial progress available for the improvement and growth of underdeveloped areas.' From the collection of Dr. Lawrence E. Miller.
