The page after the dedication page, Maya Angelou once again has written out the recipients name just below the Swing Low quote, but nothing further. Looks as though she was going to write a note as there is a comma after the name, but nothing further. DJ is price clipped. Book is nearly fine. Only flaw is a couple of faint discolorations to black cloth/panels. DJ is equally as nice with a few small wrinkles to crown of DJ. 1st/1st signed by Maya Angelou.
