Pet Peeves Signed by Author George Plimpton and Illustrator Edward Koren

Manhattan ophthalmologist David Pearce was invited to a book launch party for Pet Peeves in October of 2000. The event was held in the Upper East Side home of George Plimpton, a literary presence in the community. Dr. Pearce's copy is signed by both author George Plimpton and illustrator Edward Koren.

A copy of Pet Peeves or Whatever Happened to Doctor Rawff? (2000) inscribed "To David Pearce/George Plimpton" and signed Edward Koren with the further inscription "For David ~ With great good cheer./Ed"

Of course yes.

Note:  Thanks again to David from Manhattan for sharing this volume from the library of the late David Pearce. Bibliophiles are invited to send scans of their favorite personalized volumes, particularly if a notable author or illustrator is involved.
