CustomerONLYHi Mike, I messaged earlier re the Jenny Lind book.
I've got hold of an old programme from the 'inauguration of Franklin D Roosevelt & Henry A Wallace.
Its his third inauguration and is dated 1941.
Its a hardback limited edition programme in perfect condition.
It's copy no. 396 and has the name Captain HG Copeland embossed on the front.
On the first inner page it states 'This is copy No. 396 of the limited edition De Luxe Edition Roosevelt-Wallace Official Inaugural Program' It is then hand-signed by Joseph E Davies the 'Chairman of the General Inaugural Committee'
On page 3, Howard (presumably Captain HG Copeland) has written a 10 line note dedicating the book to a friend in Blackpool, England and this is signed and dated Feb 5 1941, Washington DC.
I have some info on Joseph Davies but not much on Capt Copeland and I don't have a clue about price. I have seen the non limited edition ones on eBay but that's about it.
Any info you can give is once again really appreciated.
Many thanks
