I have all the poetry books and the two novels purchased here in the uk in the early seventies, are they worth anything? For by the artistic genius. I also have a cd single of First we take..

I have moved this post to this section, as the most appropriate area for it. Please have a read of Tom's Introduction to this section to get an idea of what it's about.

When I started University, my dad gave me a gift that is one of my most treasured possessions.

It is a pristine 1st edition of Let Us Compare Mythologies.

The dust jacket is perfect, and tucked inside is the McGill University Bookstore receipt with the exhorbitant price of $1.00 hand-written and dated!

It is also dedicated, signed and dated by Mr. Cohen.

Un-signed copies of this book listed on Abebooks sell for over 1,000 pounds!

I wrote to Jarkko this morning to see if I can send the scanned signature and dedication somewhere to see if there's any way to ask Mr. Cohen if this was a friend of his, and to see if there is any way possible I can get the book to him and have him re-sign it for me.

I will be at the June 6th concert in Toronto.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
:D
