There is another photo, on the rear paste-down, of Parker's salon. There are a few newspaper clippings pasted, tipped and laid in.

Most importantly, affixed to the front free endpaper, is a folding note with a hand-written signed letter to "Saint" on one side and a poem to this "Saint" on the other.
