General comments: Found in the mixed collection of Toopsi Ray and her daughter, Meghna. Toopsi says she bought this book secondhand to give to Kim, her husband at the time. The copy as she found it already had the first inscription. When her intended recipient didn’t seem to enjoy the book, Toopsi says she simply inscribed it to herself and took possession.
