Lee Kuan Yew and His Books January 20, 2011

Posted by Admin in Uncategorized.

The Minister Mentor (MM) of Republic of Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew has launched his latest book – Hard Truths this month, in the begining of 2011.  The public response to his book has been overwhelming. Limited copies (60 of them) are priced at S$10,000 a copy and they are all snatched up.

Few would remember that more than 17 years ago in 1993, Lee Kuan Yew had launch his own book – “A Selection of Lee Kuan Yew’s Speeches Over 40 Years” (in Chinese language).  Limited copies of his 1st book were signed by Lee personally and had rasied S$550,000 donated to the Nanyang Girls’ High School.

At that time, buyers of those limited copies were personally invited for the grand Launch Ceremony held at the Raffles Hotel, on 16th Sept, 1993.

This limited edition of Lee’s first published book would fetch quite a handsome sum of money by now… provided that these owners are willing to let go.

It is estimated that the 1st book launched and signed by Lee might fetch few times more in today's market, if you could find one seller who's willing to part with it
