Down with Skool Signed by Geoffrey Willans and Ronald Searle

It's uncommon to find a copy of Down With Skool! A Guide to School Life for Tiny Pupils and Their Parents (1953) signed by both the author Geoffrey Willans (1911-1958) and the illustrator Ronald Searle (1920-2011). The book, shown here in a recent bookseller listing, dates from the first Molesworth's book's second printing. It has considerable foxing and wear, while of course it lacks a dust jacket. Given all that, the offering price was probably reasonable.
