Hello Everyone,

I have recently came into posession of the above referenced book from a relative collector who passed away recently. The book itself is a first edition with some considerable wear, however it is signed by 19 survivors inside the cover. It also has a certificate of authenticity confirming the signatures had been obtained over time between 1955 and 2004. The signatures include eleanor shuman, ruth blanchard, lillian asplund, gus cohen, marjorie robb, eileen schefer, E. E. haisman, Eva Hart, edwina mackenzie, louise pope, millvina bean, beatrice sandstorm, michel navratil, j. Groves boxhall, frank goldsmith, william carter, bv dean, ralph wells, frank aks, and arden de haas. As far as i can tell by my own limited research, this seems to be a very unique item that required years to create. I have not found anything that has this number of signatures on a single item. We are not intending to sell this item at this time, but are looking for additional insight on such a unique item. Has anyone ever seen something similar, or is this truly unique?

Sounds like a neat book to have with those autographs. I have a copy of the book and like it a lot for the history of it. Yours has even more history and is unique like you said. I would hold onto it but thats your call. Cool book.
