Alcoholics Anonymous—Bill W.'s ‘Big Book’ signed by him and 20 supporters

Signed book: Alcoholics Anonymous. Tenth printing. NY: Works Publishing, 1946. Hardcover with reproduction dust jacket, 6 x 8.5, 400 pages. Signed in blue ink on the first free end page, “Affectionately, Bill, Mar/48,” and also signed on the same page and front pastedown by 20 others involved in the program. Autographic condition: very good, with toning and light staining to the signed page, not detracting from Wilson’s large signature. Book condition: G+/VG (reproduction jacket), with edge wear and the front board and endpapers cleanly, almost entirely separated at the joint. A presentable copy of a title uncommon in signed examples and undoubtedly belonging to an AA member.
