Bob Dylan signed and inscribed this page from Daniel Kramer's book in 1968. It is the last four lines of his masterpiece "Masters of War." The inscription varies significantly from the recorded version. Bob was always playing with words and probably wanted to make the inscription more personal for the inscribed. As a result these words constitute an original lyric and alternate ending to this iconic work. He has written "You masters of war, You destroy And you lie, You're not worth a headstone on your grave when you die, Bob Dylan." Handwritten in white pencil on a page measuring 8.5 x 11. The signature and inscription are fully legible and in very good condition. The page has wear including a tear at the right top (including a 1" hole), a small square tear at the left edge and tears at the left border, with repairs done on the verso. Dylan lived with Pete McKenzie and his family in Greenwich Village when he first came to New York and was performing at small venues. Dylan gave this signed and lyric's inscribed book page to Peter's mother, and the lot comes with a letter of provenance from Peter McKenzie, a forensics letters of authenticity, and a Gotta Have Rock & Roll Certificate of Authenticity.
