Minimum Bid: $500.00
Sold Price: $9,151.25 (includes buyer's premium)


Signed book: The Prophet. First edition, eighth printing. NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 1926. Hardcover, 5.75 x 8.25, 107 pages. Boldly signed and inscribed on the title page in fountain pen, "This is for Elenor Fisch, who lives in the world of beautiful understanding, Kahlil Gibran, 1926." Autographic condition: fine. Book condition: VG+/None, with a minor scuff to the front board, small ownership stamp ("D. Rajagopal") to the front pastedown, and tiny chip at the head of the spine. The stamp presents an interesting Theosophical connection—Rajagopal was the longtime friend and editor (from 1926 to 1967) of Jiddu Krishnamurti, the spiritual leader of the Theosophy movement in the early 20th century, and one of its most famous figures. An exceptionally well-preserved edition of Gibran's immensely popular work of meaningful poetic essays on the human condition, very rarely seen in signed editions.
