The autograph has not been authenticated, but is consistent with all others seen for this early printing of Trump's most famous book. Many of the early printings of the 1987 book had very similar flat-signings seen on the upper half of the first free endpaper, all slightly different but similarly slanted upwards. Like this copy, that one also had a price-clipped dust jacket. Although I don't know the history of Trump signings of this First Edition, this suggests to me that the publisher sponsored a fair number of flat-signings. In any case, my photos show what is being offered for sale.
The dust jacket with light edge wear, no tears, price-clipped, but a small amount of bleeding from dark boards seen on the inside of the dust jacket at the top of the spine. The dust jacket is now handsomely portrayed in a mylar jacket. There is no evidence or suggestion of a moisture events to the boards - photos show a somewhat uniform color loss along top and bottom edge of front board (see listing photos). Annoyingly, or maybe not ironic?, there is an additional inscription from "Maria and Dad" who is Maria? - see what I mean about ironic to Jessica underneath the Trump signature. 246 clean and solidly bound pages, no further marks.
