    Wow. I highly doubt it is real, but am amazed at the mere possibility.

    Why wouldn't it be real? signed books are far from unheard of.

    The value's going to depend on sveral things; the conditon of the book, if the book's still got it's dust jacket (if it had one in the first place), wheter or not it's the 1922 first edition, etc, but the presecence of a signutre, espeically when the author is so fmaous I imagine it's worth alot of money.
