Barrie autograph
« on: January 09, 2020, 03:51:06 AM »
Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone knows of places to send books to authenticate Barrie's autograph? I have recently come across some Barrie books with signature selling on ebay for relatively inexpensive prices. They are unauthenticated but look to my eyes (having been through the database here and having read Mr. Birkin's biography) to match Barrie's handwriting and humor. Was wondering if folks here had any advice or insight about this. Thanks!

Here's a link to two of the books:

And the seller's ebay page:

Yes, they are both genuine autograph signatures in my opinion, "Quality Street" using his left hand, "Margaret Ogilvy" more probably with his right.

Thanks so much for your reply! Seems like a pretty good deal to me, I've placed my order. Hope others may be interested as well. And many thanks for all your work and the materials you make available on the website, I've really enjoyed looking through everything. Happy New Year!

I forgot to mention for anyone interested, the seller has about 10 books in the same collection signed by Barrie, most customized for a "Dr. Leslie." Pretty neat to see what's written in each.
