Does anyone know if a Trader Vic signature is worth anything? I happened upon a first printing (are there any others?) Trader Vic's Book of Food and Drink from 1946.

The Signature is personalized:

Aloha
To Renie
Trader Vic 1964

It is also signed by Bill Coleman, but nobody knows who he is. My guess would be that he was a manager of one of the Trader Vic Restaurants, but I have no basis for that theory...

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

It's a plus, but not at all rare. He was around to sign his books for a long time and glad to do it. So you find a large percentage of books and even menus, etc. signed by Trader Vic.

That is what I thought. Thank you for reinforcing my theory.
