History of Lion Heart Autographs
David H. Lowenherz, owner of Lion Heart Autographs, was first introduced to the world of autograph
collecting through his father, Max. At the age of 27, David opened Lion Heart Autographs and from the start
he set out to make his business international in scope. Focusing on American and European material, the
business grew from a one-man operation into one of the premier historical manuscript dealerships in the
United States.

Lion Heart (a translation of David’s surname) combines David’s love of rare collectibles and scholarship with
his business philosophy: Quality, Service, Value, and Integrity. For more than three decades David has
assisted hundreds of Lion Heart’s satisfied customers to build their collections; some even refer to him as
their “personal curator.”

David's personal collection of Robert Frost signed books, letters and manuscripts, one of the finest in
private hands, was exhibited in 1999 at the Grolier Club on the occasion of the 125th anniversary of Frost’s
birth. The richly illustrated, limited edition catalogue Robert Frost: The David H. Lowenherz Collection –
Letters, Manuscripts, and Inscribed Books can be purchased directly from Lion Heart Autographs.

In 2000, David began a series of books that brought together famous and important letters organized by
theme. The first book, The 50 Greatest Love Letters of All Time, published by Crown, a division of Random
House, received enormous attention and praise since its January 2002 release and went, almost
immediately, into a second, third, and then a fourth printing. It was also published in Israel, Italy, Japan and
Korea, and selections from this book were used in the first "Sex and the City" movie.

In conjunction with the release of his book, David lectured to a sold out audience at New York City’s 92nd
Street Y, appeared on the BBC’s World Service, was interviewed 12 times, coast-to-coast, on Canadian
radio, and on many U.S. radio stations including WNYC’s The Next Big Thing. He continued to speak on the
subject of love letters and autograph collecting while completing his second book of the series, The 50
Greatest Letters from America’s Wars, published by Crown in December 2002.
