A Recently Discovered Treasure !

Dr. William D. Silkworth's Personal book, INSCRIBED to him by Bill Wilson (His full name), Christmas, 1949

"To Dr William D Silkworth: A founder of AA, and our Wonderful friend, whose labors in our behalf have meant so much to so many.
With inexpressible gratitude - Bill Wilson Bedford Hills Xmas, 49".

Dr. Silkworth wrote the "Dr.'s Opinion" in the Big Book and was Bill Wilson's physician at Towns Hospital in New York.

Note that Bill referred to Dr. Silkworth as "A founder of AA..." ! This is a very historical unique one of a kind book.

The boards have water stains that could be improved with archival dying. I am leaving this decision up to the new caretaker of the book, and can direct you to someone who can do this.

Included, two items that came with the book: "The Twelve Traditions" Signed "Bill" that came inside the book; and serenity prayer card with envelope, no date but believe to be an early printing.

Comes with an ORIGINAL dust Jacket and an archival Clam Shell Box.

I can not begin to explain the significance of this book being inscribed to Dr. Silkworth by Bill Wilson !

Call Keith at 419 563-5905 with questions or to discuss.
