Great Gifts
Just in time for the holidays, we’ve selected a gift-worthy group of historic documents, maps, signed books, prints, and more! With prices ranging from less than $150 to more than $35,000, there’s something for anyone with a passion for history.

Franklin & Eleanor
The new film, Hyde Park on the Hudson, inspired us to update our list of Roosevelt-related signed documents and artifacts. Here, we offer a group of items ranging from a large signed wartime photograph of FDR to an important letter in which the First Lady defends her advocacy of civil rights. (If you’ve seen The Help, you will want to read this letter).

Collecting Lincoln
Since Abraham Lincoln is one of our specialties, we’ve noticed interest from first-time collectors sparked by Steven Spielberg’s magnificent film, Lincoln. For this online catalog, we’ve chosen items from our large collection of Lincoln and Civil War material that include everything from inexpensive issues of Harper’s Weekly and Currier & Ives political cartoons to unique original Lincoln letters, signed documents, and artifacts—even the chair in which he was sitting when he first learned he had received the Republican nomination for the presidency.
