Marginalia on front flyleaf of Killer, and other plays by Eugène Ionesco, inscribed by Daniel Berrigan, May 17, 1968. The inscription begins upside down on the title page and runs through two pages and the inside cover. The inscription is the original draft of the speech Berrigan made later that day at the draft board office in Catonsville, Maryland, where, with eight other activists (later known as the Catonsville Nine), he seized and burned draft records in protest of the Vietnam War, setting off a wave of similar protests throughout the country.
