I have two Katharine Ann Porter inscribed ML books.
I had at one time  a John Dos Passos ML, sold it for $90.00

The whole duty of art is listening for the voice of God

 Scot :Why not a signed ML project? Could we not query owner's of Modern Library items for those signed by the author, illustrator, or others of note and post this on the web site? It seems the F.S.Fitzgerald signing or non-signing has generated more interest than any other issue of late.
