Signed and Inscribed by George Booth

A classic 1984 cartoon collection by George Booth with an original signature and inscription sold for a very reasonable price on eBay. One can easily find unsigned copies of Omnibooth selling for more--much more. Allow me to demonstrate:

Finally, from Summit Read in Summit, New Jersey, we have an unsigned "new" copy selling for more than eleven times the price of the signed and inscribed copy on eBay. I personally have no plans to do any book shopping at this store.

December 22, 2013 Update:  The unsigned Summit Read copy of Omnibooth in new condition is no longer available through Abe Books. Presumably it has been sold.

Note: Today Ink Spill reports that the latest entry in Richard Gehr's Know Your New Yorker Cartoonists column is about George Booth. You can read "George Booth:  Semper Fi" at The Comics Journal here.

Then if you'd care for some of my earlier posts on the extraordinary George Booth, simply look here.
