WARREN BUFFETT Book on Contract Bridge SIGNED & LOVINGLY INSCRIBED to HIS BRIDGE PARTNER and GOOD FRIEND

WARREN BUFFETT Book on Contract Bridge SIGNED & LOVINGLY INSCRIBED to HIS BRIDGE PARTNER and GOOD FRIEND

THE OFFICIAL SYSTEM OF CONTRACT BRIDGE: THE OFFICIAL BOOK ON THE OFFICIAL SYSTEM. Produced by Bridge Headquarters, Inc., New York; and Published by The John C. Winston Company, Chicago,1931.

SIGNED and LOVINGLY INSCRIBED by the great Bridge Player and even greater Investor WARREN BUFFETT to his long-time BRIDGE PARTNER and FRIEND SHARON OSBERG.

"To Sharon - / This was the nursery book my mother read to me at age 1. / Unfortunately she emphasized Chapter 17 / Love, / Warren".

Chapter 17 discusses the subject of overbidding, how it can be either a disastrous move or a smart tactic. Hmm. I think Warren applied the smart tactic part of the lesson in his business dealings!

Not just signed and inscribed, but affectionately so.

Sharon Osberg is not only a bridge partner to Warren Buffett but to Bill Gates as well.

The Book: Hardcovers, faux suede leather covered boards, gilt lettering and designs on the front cover and spine (though mostly faded away on the spine), 5x7.5 inches, [2], vi, 236 pages.

In addition to the Contract Bridge book, the lot includes 15 booklets on Bridge from the collection of Sharon Osberg. Each of the booklets has a mailing label addressed to Sharon Osberg (or Sharon Smith, her earlier married name) on the back or front cover.

GOOD Condition: The Contract Bridge book is darkened at the spine, rubbed at the boards, and has inner pages that are lightly toned, but it is a solid, complete, nice copy. Warren Buffett's inscription on the title page is bright and clear.

The Osberg collection of 15 Bridge booklets are in generally GOOD condition, a couple of the covers are splitting at the spine, and a few have some creases, but overall they are solid and clean, and together they provide great provenance for the book.

A UNIQUE TREASURE once it's gone it's gone.

FOR IMAGES of Osberg together with Buffett and Gates, Google: "Warren Buffett" "Sharon Osberg" or Google: "Bill Gates" "Sharon Osberg", and you will find images of her with one, or the other, or both.

There is a great interview with Sharon Osberg that delves into her close relationship with Warren Buffett and Bill Gates. Google: "Sharon Osberg" "Warren Buffett" "SFGate" or Google: "THE BRIDGE CLUB / WHAT DO SHARON OSBERG, WARREN BUFFETT and BILL GATES SHARE? A LOVE OF BRIDGE".

And I leave you with this tidbit:

When Sequoia [a large Venture Capital firm] was seeking new independent directors 12 years ago, Mr. Buffett recommended Ms. Osberg. In a 2006 interview with The San Francisco Chronicle, she described Mr. Buffett as her best friend, and she has often spent Thanksgiving with him in Omaha. A former Wells Fargo executive, Ms. Osberg is perhaps best known as a world-class bridge player. She has won two world championships, and she and Mr. Buffett play bridge electronically four times a week. - NY Times 2015.
