For those of us in the public sector, the beings of published authors exist only in the abstract. To be sure, their names may be in print, and in many instances, those names may be universally renowned. But their flesh and substance are afar – mere apparitions to their audience. However, there is, on occasion, a bridge that spans the gap between writer and reader. It’s consummated in the captured autograph, thereby delivering witness that the admirer has gained the acknowledgment of the author.
The following section provides our subscribers the opportunity to begin, or enhance, a collection of literary works that have been author-signed. For the most part, this literature is high fiction, penned in recent years, and generally gaining acclaim from critics and readers alike. Unless specified, it may be assumed that each book: trong>a) is hardbound with its dustjacket; trong>b) is in minimally EX/MT condition (most are NM/MT or “unread”); trong>c) is first edition (and usually first printing); trong>d) is signed by the author (in some instances, however, it’s signed by the subject of the monograph, which will be so qualified); trong>e) may, or may not, be personalized, with notations; trong>f) is signed in dark ink (ballpoint or felt tip) at a quality of “8” or stronger; trong>g) is signed on one of the title pages or first end page; and trong>h) has been signed directly on the pagetrong>. Departures from these standards will be noted.
