A tree grows...

Here's a little story from the used book buyer's desk. Today a gentleman came in with an old copy of Betty Smith's A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. The buyer took a look inside and, lo and behold, the book was an illustrated first edition. And, as you can see above, it was also signed.

So, the buyer looked it up. (Note that the copy linked is signed on a book plate. The book above is signed on the title page.)

Needless to say, we had to pass on it. The owner is bringing it home to consider his next move.

It was just exciting to see it, really.
