Wagner, Kip. Pieces of Eight (1966 First Edition), autographed by all 10 Real Eight members and associates PLUS Kip's family members on inside pages. 9-1/2" x 6-1/4", 221 pp (hardbound). Ten signatures is the benchmark for this famous book about the Real Eight Co. and the finding of the 1715 Fleet, preferably on a 1st edition, as we see here--but this one actually has FOURTEEN SIGNATURES, as sprinkled throughout the text are the signatures (next to their mention in the narrative and photos) of Kip's whole family, including himself, wife Alice, son Tom, and nephew Rex Stocker, the first and last of whom are also among the ten signatures on the title page (and pictured with the rest of the gang on the back of the dust jacket). Very Fine condition, no problems, and certain to cause a stir among the treasure community. (Note: we sold a 10-signature 2nd printing in our Auction #7 for $1,300 plus buyer's fee!)
