Signed 1-of-a-kind Bridges Of Madison County. Robert James Waller HCDJ
1992. Signed 1-of-a-kind Bridges Of Madison County. Shipped with USPS Media Mail. Up for sale is a remarkable item. In April of 1992 Robert Waller's first and best known novel "The bridges of Madison county" was published and soon became one of the best selling modern hardcovers . Turned into a movie and remaining a best seller for YEARS. Robert Waller wrote the book over a feverish eleven day span and claimed it just came to him and had no bases in truth. He apparently had no plans of publishing but after assurances of its quality from family and friends who read it he submitted and the rest is history. Sadly Mr. Waller passed in 2017. In May of 17' approximately 1 month after his passing I found this copy along with 5 postcards at a local second hand bookstore. You can imagine my surprise as I read the remarkable inscription in the book and intimate parlance in the postcards. I realized that this was special but had no idea of just how special until I did an in depth search online. A personalized dedication copy to his "true Francesca" along with love letter postcards referencing the real life encounter that inspired the national bestseller. A rare and wonderful piece of Americana. Please reach out if you have questions.
