Lot 26: Herbert Hoover typed signed letter
10th October 2018
TLS as president, one page, 6.5 x 8.5, White House letterhead, August 1, 1929. Letter to Edward H. Benjamin at Bohemian Grove in Monte Rio, California, in full: "Many thanks for your note of July 28th with the breath of Bohemian Grove." At the end, Hoover hand-writes: "at last of the plant life!" Nicely matted and framed with the original mailing envelope and a portrait to an overall size of 12.25 x 26.75. In fine condition. Hoover's autograph letters as president are among the greatest presidential rarities, making this typed letter with handwritten addition a suitable alternative. It also boasts an interesting association with the mysterious Bohemian Grove campground, which famously hosts a two-week encampment of the most powerful men in the world every summer—the subject of countless conspiracy theories.
