We have been in the Used/OP book business for 30+ years & have a LOT of inventory, with more piling up weekly.

Two Vintage pieces of 1964 Presidential Campaign Literature. 1) Campaign paper produced by "Lehigh Valley (PA) Citizens For Goldwater-Miller Committee." Ronald Reagan then a rising star in conservative politics. The 1964 campaign was the Republican ticket of Barry Goldwater & William Miller against Democrats LBJ & Hubert H. Humphrey. Ronald Reagan then a rising star in conservative politics.gave a well-received televised speech supporting Goldwater; it was so popular that Goldwater's advisors had it played on local television stations around the nation & reproduced in campaign literature. Many historians consider this speechâ"A Time for Choosing"âto mark the beginning of Reagan's transformation from an actor to a political leader. This campaign flyer contains an address by Reagan also called "A Time For Choosing" in which he lays out Goldwater's beliefs & contrasts them with LBJ for swaying the voters in the coming election. It didn't work, Goldwater lost in a landslide, but Reagan went on the be elected Governor of CA & twice President. An interesting look at the thinking of the rising conservative star. Condition: Good with expected handling wear; paper slightly age toning but not brittle. Ends abruptly on the bottom of page 10 in mid-sentence. Not known if this was intended, there is no tear at the staple to indicated that their were further pages attached. 2) Three-fold campaign brochure for Barry Goldwater's Vice Presidential running mate William Miller, giving biographical details of his life, family & background. Miller 15 minutes of fame came as Goldwater's unsuccessful running mate. He was highly regarded in Republican conservative circles, but like Goldwater had an acid tongue & spoke his mind without regard for possible political ramifications. In fact Goldwater was reputed to have told confidants that he choose Miller because, "he drives Lyndon nits." Condition: Very Good. William E.(dward) Miller, (1914-1983) Representative from New York, graduated from Notre Dame University, & from Albany Law School of Union University; was admitted to the bar in 1938; assistant prosecutor of Nazi war criminals at Nuremberg, Germany, in 1945 and 1946; elected to the HR as a Republican 1951-65; an unsuccessful Republican candidate in 1964 to be Vice President of the United States.
