Dedications: To another mystic

IMG-20141023-01117

To another mystic + revolutionary
with affectionate regard.
J.M. + J.G.
January 6, 1991

In older dedications I sometimes find simply lovely language – when was the last time you dedicated a book to a fellow mystic and revolutionary?

It’s interesting, too, to guess at the history of this one – the name at the top (Arthur Kent Griffin) doesn’t match either of the initial sets in the dedication, but perhaps Arthur was the person it was gifted to?

I collected dozens of these types of dedications when I worked at a used bookstore, and I still keep an eye out for them when I’m browsing second-hand books. Now you can find a new dedication here every Friday. See the complete list here!

Have any of your previously loved books come with notes from past owners? Send them my way!
