Two journals; one personalized with Rob McKuen's name embossed on the front cover (eighteen pages of various song lists inside); and the other with holograph ink numbers and sticker on its front cover (twelve pages of similar numbers and poem fragments inside). Two guest books; one silver volume with seven pages of signatures from a 1980 celebration for his book An Outstretched Hand (names include David Horowitz, Brenda Vaccaro, Paul Newman, Nancy Cushing-Jones, and Vickie Hall); and a larger volume with seven pages of inscriptions thanking McKuen for a good evening in 1971 (names include Michael Greer, Chuck Jones, Frank Severino, and Jonathan Dolger).

In each case, most of the pages remain blank. Bindings rubbed and soiled, one with paper label remnants on its front cover; few page smudges and creases. Very good. From the Estate of Rod McKuen.
