5.0 out of 5 stars Great Reference Book on JFK Autographs September 1, 2003
By A Customer
This was a grat help to me as a new autograph collector. The examples in the book will keep me from making a very expensive mistake. Charles Hamilton does a great job of just telling it like it is. I was fortunate enough to get a limited edition copy of which only 3000 were reprinted. With so many JFK autographs on the market, this book will only become more valuable. The mylar sheet that is included as a guide so you can compare the many different robot signings is a great tool. As well as actual pictures of the machines used. A great investment for serious collectors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hamilton wrote THE book on JFK autographs January 2, 1998
By A Customer
The late Charles Hamilton's work on the elusive world of JFK autographs is a must for any collecter or student of the Kennedy years. His detailed analysis of autopen and secretarial signatures can save a person a huge headache and a lot of money. Kennedy used both means to autograph photos and sign letters which makes an authentic signature rare. Hamilton set the record straight. The only real drawback is that it is a rather pricey volume for one that is so slender.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Book, Excellent Bookseller . . . September 9, 2013
By Ed
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was lucky to score this quite scarce book (at a fair price), essential for checking authenticity of JFK autographs. 4 stars rather than 5 because there is a newer, paperback edition, also scarce, that may or may not contain additional/updated info, but 'revised', which lowers my grading of the original. The book DID definitely confirm that my autograph is a secretary signature, not JFK (rats!), so it was good to be able to acquire a copy. The dealer, Ean Hamilton, gets 5 stars!
