SIGNED BY DR BOB SMITH 1st Ed Big Book Original Dust Jacket Alcoholics Anonymous
Works Publishing, 1947. SIGNED BY DR BOB SMITH, CO-FOUNDER OF ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS. 1st Edition 11th Printing Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous printed in 1947 with original dust jacket. Dr Bob's signature is much more rare and valuable than the other co-founder Bill Wilson's. Dr Bob didn't sign as much, mostly because he died 21 years earlier, but also because he was much more reserved than Bill. Dr Bob helped an estimated 5000 alcoholics during his 15 years in AA, many with medical help without any thought of charge. This book has his classic inscription, 'Best of continued success in AA.' This book came from a deceased physician's collection in Southern California that had several items signed by Bill and Bob. This book is in excellent shape. No writing aside from the inscription. Dust jacket is in great shape as well. Also, this book comes with a FREE custom made wooden box. Do you need a Dr Bob signature for your collection? ITEMS LIKE THIS ARE GETTING HARDER AND HARDER TO FIND WITH THE INCREASING NUMBER OF ARCHIVES AND PRIVATE COLLECTIONS. Pete Lowery from Palmer, TX ('Pete from Palmer') used to say..."$6k minimum for a napkin or directory, but his full name in a Big Book? $15-20k." A solid investment for any collector. I'm open to offers, but i don't think I'm priced too high as it is. Please message me if you're interested. Thank you. -Sean C. [Attributes: First Edition; In Dust Jacket]
