PARKS, Rosa. Rosa Parks: My Story. With Jim Haskins. New York: Dial Books, (1992). Octavo, original half purple cloth, original dust jacket.

First edition, third printing, of Parks' autobiography, signed by her on the half title and dated "3/21/93."

"Actually no one can understand the action of Mrs. Parks unless he realizes that eventually the cup of endurance runs over, and the human personality cries out, 'I can take it no longer" (Martin Luther King, Jr.). "The mother of the Civil Rights Movement," Parks refused to relinquish her bus seat to a white man on December 1, 1955, and sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott. First edition, third printing: with numerous photographic illustrations.

A fine copy.
