- Jun 8, 2001Keith: Nope, no owners name. I bought it from the Jack London Bookstore
in Glen Ellen. She has been in the business a long time and has a good
memory. She bought a lot of Blandings several years ago and may remember
the owner. Long shot but worth a try. I know your bibliographers are
serious cats. I remember meeting the man who did an Art Tatum bibliography.
He spent an astounding amount of time to get the date of a concert right.
As the old saw goes, someone has to do it.
Did Blanding end up in California? He certainly hit the circuit. My father
had (now mine) an inscribed copy of Today Is Here from Rotary in Santa Rosa
California in 1947....
