Smile Not by Anne but still cool

I just found a signed first edition copy of Ringmaster http://www.amazon.com/Ringmaster-Yea.../dp/0525247572. I went to our local thrift store and saw the book, commenting to my Aunt about the unicorn on the cover as the guy who created it lived only a few miles from where I lived as a child. Opening it to check for missing pages I found the following...

John-where did those 33 years go since we did "Godspell" together? So fun to share the stage with you again in "Chitty" on the West Coast! Thanks for doing the show!

Got it for .35 cents! This is the first signed book I have found and hopefully it won't be the last.

P.S. The opinion usually seen on the internet that the unicorn had a bull's horn implanted in it's forehead is falsified by this book. That was a rumor deliberately released by the circus to drum up publicity. The animal actually had it's own horn buds transplanted next to one another so they would grow together into a single horn. Unfortunately I never got to see the unicorns despite their nearby location but some good pictures can be found here...
