Bill Moyers's Copy of B. Tobey of The New Yorker

From Judith and Bill Moyers's personal library, an inscribed copy of B. Tobey of The New Yorker (1983) was offered for sale in the Rare Book Room of Strand Bookstore in June of 2015. This copy was photographed on November 14 and was subsequently sold.

B. Tobey of The New Yorker (1983) inscribed
"Dec. 3, '85
To:  Judith and
Bill Moyers
With Warmest
Regards ***

Bookseller notations:

Note:  Now we've seen a couple of excellent copies of this book, both personalized by Barney Tobey. The perpetrator of this blog is always pleased to share outstanding copies of books by New Yorker artists, especially those containing original signatures, inscriptions, and drawings. So why not send along your scans?
