First edition of Martin Luther King Jr. 's second book. Octavo, original half cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Major Ernest D. Muse With Best Wishes Martin Luther King." Fine in a very good dust jacket with light rubbing and a few small closed tears. Rare and desirable signed and inscribed by Dr. King. Strength to Love was Martin Luther King's first volume of sermons, published the same year in which he penned his Letter from a Birmingham Jail, and joined the historic March on Washington and delivered his famous I have a dream speech. The following year he won the Nobel Peace Prize. King notes in the preface: "In these turbulent days of uncertainty the evils of war and of economic and racial injustice threaten the very survival of the human race. Indeed, we live in a day of grave crisis. The sermons in this volume have the present crisis as their background; and they have been selected for this volume because, in one way or another, they deal with the personal and collective problems that the crisis presents."
