One page autograph manuscript signed
n.p., 1973. n.p.. 1973. "Small 8vo (approx. 8½ x 6 inches), in black Flair pen, and apparently torn from a larger sheet; 3 small holes not significantly affecting any legibility, otherwise very good. & & A typically enigmatic inscription: ""Proud of you"" (in a hand-drawn box at the top, to the right of which is a small drawing of a face) / ""You never sniffed drainpipes but you [two words crossed out] have a good [one word crossed out] grasp of the alphabet - Highway 51 [one word crossed out] is not your road!"" Signed boldly at the bottom, ""Bob Dylan / 1973"" to the left of which signature is another drawing by Dylan of the rear end of an automobile depicting smoke coming from the tailpipe. & & Partly drawn from the lyrics of one of his masterpieces, Desolation Row: ""Einstein, disguised as Robin Hood / With his memories in a trunk / Passed this way an hour ago / With his friend, a jealous monk / He looked so immaculately frightful / As he bummed a cigarette / Then he went off sniffing drainpipes / And reciting the alphabet."""
