Signed Pierre Berton books

Okay, so you really gotta be Canadian to get excited about this post–and I suppose you have to be old, too (which says a lot about your humble blogger).  Anyway, yesterday we received a box of books that got this old Canadian doing a happy dance.

These are written by Pierre Berton.  They are all signed by Pierre Berton. They all have dust jackets.  A lot of them are first editions.  Sadly, they aren’t likely to have your name inside, as they’re addressed to specific people.  In any case, they’re special.

The coolest item of the lot, however, is signed by Mr. Berton but not written by him.  This is the programme from an appreciation dinner given by his friends; it contains the menu for the dinner, poems, short essays, illustrations, etc.  If you’re a collector or a Pierre Berton fan, this is the one for you.
