8 CLINTON, BILL & PETER BAKER The Breach - Inside the Impeachment and Trial of William Jefferson Clinton - By Peter Baker
New York Scribner 2000 
First Edition. Laid in is an original ticket, 5 1/2” x 2 5/8”, for admission into the impeachment proceedings of former President Bill Clinton, printed in black ink on yellow card stock: “106th Congress, First Session, United States Senate Senate. Impeachment Trial of the President of the United States. Admit Bearer to the Senate Gallery.” The ticket is stamped in red ink “Jan. 08 1999” inside a ‘Date' box on the right side of the ticket, and has the image of the Great Seal of the United States printed at the upper left corner. On the verso is printed a brief set of rules and guidelines for visiting the Senate Galleries. The book is illustrated with black & white photographs tracking the course of events and key players in the impeachment process. As new in an as new dust jacket with a photograph illustration on the front panel of a pair of impeachment trial tickets. The book relates in great detail the accounts of the six-month long impeachment and trial of President Bill Clinton, which began on August 17, 1998 and ended with his acquittal on February 12, 1999. January 7, 1999, the day before this particular ticket is set for, the impeachment trial officially opened in the Senate with the reading of the charges and the swearing in of Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist and the senator-jurors. Highlighting the general sense of political drama, the Senate remained gridlocked that day on rules and recesses without coming to any agreement. On the day of this ticket, January 8, 1999, there was a closed-door party caucus meeting which broke the deadlock on procedures, which passed on the Senate floor with a vote of 100 to 0. A fascinating account of one of the most complex events in American presidential history - the first impeachment of an elected president, written by the journalist who co-wrote the original article in the Washington Post which broke the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

9 HOOVER, HERBERT Original Mimeographed Speech by Former President, Herbert Hoover, at a Meeting of the Friends of the Chicago Boys Clubs, Dated May 5, 1949
Chicago Boys' Clubs of America 1949 
First Edition. Five pages, stapled at the upper left corner. About fine with just a hint of age toning and a single neat crease from folding. A compelling speech by former U.S. President, Herbert Hoover, then Chairman of the Boy's Clubs of America, in which he speaks to the circumstances and needs of at-risk urban boys (whom he describes as “pavement boys”), and, to a somewhat less-articulated extent, girls, and how the Boys' Clubs may offer sanctuary and support. His speech concludes: “And what do I say in conclusion? But little. You picture that pavement boy entering the door of that house of constructive joy, his boys club. The light of his face - and the gleam of honest devilment in his eye - the feeling of trust and security in his heart - and the future of our country and world in his hand.” The Hoover administration (1929 -1933) was in place as the Great Depression swept across the nation, and was succeeded in office by Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who guided the country to prosperity and through the dark times of World War II.

10 HOOVER, HERBERT Original Press Release Announcing a National Radio Address by Former President, Herbert Hoover: “Shall We Send Armies to Europe” to be Broadcast on November 19, 1941 on the Columbia Broadcasting System Network Sponsored By the Union League Club of Chicago, Illinois
Chicago The Union League Club of Chicago 1941 
First Edition. A single sheet of newsprint, printed on one side only, measuring 13 5/8” x 17 1/4”, neatly folded into sixths. Near fine condition with some minor age toning and a 3/8” tear to the body of the piece, not affecting the legibility of the text. A fascinating and articulate presentation of former President Herbert Hoover's views on whether or not the United States should commit troops to Europe, just weeks prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor (December 7, 1941) which effectively ended the debate and brought us abruptly into wartime. Hoover closes his piece with this impassioned paragraph: “Surely if we ceased to fan hate and fear; if we have labor peace; if we definitely act to preserve the Fifth Freedom; if we strive to save these millions of European children; if our people were definitely assured that we are not going to send our armies to Europe or its suburbs without the authority of Congress; that we have a practical plan to preserve peace after the war - then we could summon far greater unity. Then, also, my fellow Americans, we might summon the whole world to reason.” The Hoover administration (1929 -1933) was in place as the Great Depression swept across the nation, and was succeeded in office by Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who guided the country to prosperity and through the dark times of World War II.

11 KENNEDY, JOHN F. & JOSEPH P. KENNEDY, JR. Original Bookplates for John F. Kennedy and Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr.
2 14” x 2 1/8” n.d. 
Two original bookplates for John F. Kennedy and his older brother Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr., both of which were used by them when they were children. The design consists of black gothic lettering and an open missal in the center, within a line border. One reads: “Jack Kennedy His Book” and the other: “This Book Belongs to Jos. P. Kennedy, Jr.” Each bookplate is affixed to the inside front board of a book, accompanied by the rear board; all that remains of unknown books which had presumably become worn or detached, and the books themselves may well have been rebound. What we can notice is that the books were most likely from the same set, with identical three-quarter calf and marbled boards, measuring 5” x 7 1/2”. The bookplates are somewhat foxed, but are fully intact without tears or other indication of wear. Exceedingly rare.
