The President's Book of Secrets from Jon Turteltaub's action-adventure sequel National Treasure: Book of Secrets. Ben Gates (Nicolas Cage), Abigail Chase (Diane Kruger) and Riley Poole (Justin Bartha) found the Book of Secrets in the Library of Congress and used it to guide them to Mount Rushmore and the hidden city of gold.
The leatherbound book features printed pages full of historical details and conspiracies, including the Kennedy assassination, Area 51 and the Moon landings. It also includes maps and photographs, including one of the missing plank from the Resolute Desk. The book has been intentionally distressed to appear old, stained and well-used, and is held closed with leather string. It is accompanied by a sample page, which was produced early in the production. The book has only very minor wear from production use and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Ross MacDonald, who researched, designed and constructed the book for the film. Dimensions: 27 cm x 16 cm x 6 cm (10¾" x 6¼" x 2¼")
Estimate: £6,000 - 8,000 †
