GB Shaw anecdote
George Bernard Shaw once came across one of his own books in a used bookstore in London. He was surprised to find his own inscription inside — he had presented the book "with esteem" to a friend. He immediately bought the book and had it wrapped and delivered again, after adding a second inscription: "With renewed esteem, George Bernard Shaw."
