Inscription was made In Miami: February 3, 1958 to a member of the Sea Bees who had met Michener in the Pacific. The recipient was working in a restaurant on Miami Beach frequented by Michener. They struck up a conversation and the next day had the book signed. There is also a small newspaper article taped inside.
According the nephew, the book resided for many years in a case in a VFW which perhaps accounts for the poor handling of the Dust jacket. Additionally, the nephew told me that his uncle was mentioned in the book (not by name) I can't confirm this.

Tales of the South Pacific won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1948.
