Price is for all six books from the library of Glen Hearst Taylor, Senator, (Idaho) of the USA (1904-1984). Served from January 3, 1945 to January 3, 1951. He was also a progressive candidate for Vice President of the United States, 1948. He was arrested in May of 1948 for attempting to use a door reserved for African Americans, rather than a whites-only door.
All books are in excellent condition, all wrapped in mylar. The S label is to denote that these are all signed first editions. All six books bear personal inscriptions to the senator by the author. I have additional photos of all inscriptions but this site will not allow more photos.
