"The Elton John signatures in the bookplates do differ though. I have seen 4 different ones which makes me believe they are not auto pen."

"Strange. I did receive confirmation from Pan Macmillan who is the books publisher that the book plates were in fact authentic and distributed to small independent book stores in very limited numbers. Find it difficult to believe otherwise as they…"
