The previous owner was an L. Based book dealer and collector who possessed a large collection of bookplates signed by famous authors and celebrities, many of which were designated with a particular work.
Unfortunately, the collector, who was something of a hoarder, passed on before he could match his many signed bookplates to the titles and people represented in his library. I obtained both the plates, and this book, as part of his estate.
This plate was from his complete collection of Vonnegut signed plates. It bears Vonnegut's distinctive signature in black ink; according to his widow, it was obtained at a paid-admission event in early-1990s Los Angeles where Vonnegut and other "name" authors signed books and memorabilia for fans. Offered here at a super-low price -- a must-own for Vonnegut fans or collectors!
