A box found in a Maine attic, full of letters written by Alexander Hamilton; George Washington's notes for his address to Congress; papers filled out and signed by Amelia Earhart when she became the first woman to fly the Atlantic—these are a few of the items that Nathan Raab has located and authenticated for The Raab Collection. A leading dealer of historical artifacts, Raab relates fascinating tales as he investigates leads from hopeful inheritors, scours auctions for overlooked treasures, and tracks down lost or fragmented bits of history, be it a piece of the first electric cable laid by Edison or missing audio tapes from Air Force One, recorded as the plane brought JFK's body back to Washington.

"As skilled in satisfying readers as clients, Raab knows how to tell a story…. Unfailingly entertaining."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
