At a Glance
A collection of documents signed by American presidents and bound together in a single volume. Every president, except Eisenhower and Nixon, is represented in the collection. The documents, which are mostly military and naval appointments, certificates of merit, etc. are routine in nature, but an autographed copy (printed) of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's second inaugural address and a signed mimeographed copy of Lyndon Baines Johnson's speech to Congress, November 27, 1963, are also included.
