Collector's Item! Autographed copy of
Frankie Manning's Autobiography
"Ambassador of Lindy Hop"
Guy
Value - Priceless (Frankie passed away, he can't sign anymore books!
Minimum Bid $50, Minimum bid increase $5

This is a particular collector's item, as Frankie passed away last year just before his 95th birthday. He was truly THE Ambassador of Lindy Hop from the moment he laced up a pair of shoes and stepped onto the dance floor back when Lindy Hop all began! This book is signed by both Frankie Manning and his collaborator, Cynthia Millman.

"Ambassador of Lindy Hop," the account of Frankie Manning's many lives from 1914 until 2009, is a delight to the eye, the ear and the heart. The story is told in Manning's own voice from his excellent recollection, and has been formed into a tight memoir with pruning and coaxing from his collaborator, Cynthia Millman.
