Signed books are one of the more fascinating type of book to collect, and are likely to increase in value overtime. Those books with a noteworthy association such as my copy of "An American Journey" inscribed by George McGovern to George Rogers of New Bedford, Massachusetts can be even more interesting and more valuable. Rogers was a delegate to Democratic National Convention from Massachusetts, 1972; a member of Massachusetts state senate, 1975-78; convicted of bribery in 1978 and sentenced to two years in prison. Rogers was later relected but is now facing new legal issues. My selection of signed titles ranges over a wide variety ... from George McGovern and Edward Everett, or Henry Miller and Anthony Hecht, to Charles de Lint and J.K. Rowlings ... I'm sure you can find something you'd like to have for your collection.
