    A unique copy inscribed by Aldrin to his "Name Giver" and signed "Buzzer"

    Buzz Aldrin Signed Book Originally from His Personal Collection: Encounter with Tiber, with LOA. (New York: Warner Books, 1996). First edition, first printing, octavo, 560 pages, publisher's cloth with unclipped dust jacket. Signed on the title page: "To Fay Ann/ My Name Giver/ Enjoy A Space Encounter/ Love/ Buzzer/ 7-7-96". Fay Ann was one of Buzz's older sisters and she, as a child, could not quite pronounce the word "Brother". Instead, it came out "Buzzer" and the shortened version stuck with him his whole life. Eventually, he changed his legal name to Buzz Aldrin. This is likely a unique form of his autograph, given by Buzz to Fay Ann when this book was hot off the press. Very fine.

    A Letter of Authenticity signed by Mrs. Potter's son (the executor of her estate) will accompany this lot.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
