I have a waitlisted book with an embossed "From the Library of..." personalized seal on the title page.  (It is a seal, not a stamp, so there is no ink to obscure the book's text.)  Is this something that I must post in the Bazaar because PBS considers it unpostable?

Also, I have a second waitlisted book that has the previous owner's contact info - name, address, phone - on a non-text/flyleaf page.  It's more than a signature but I believe the PBS conditions state that a note is fine as well.  Is this one ok to post or do I need to post to the Bazaar?

Thanks for your help.  kz

a signature or note on the flyleaf or inside front or back cover is OKAY

an author's signature on the title page is OKAY

So I'd say yes, both are postable

The first is considered a bookplate.  IMO both are postable as long as none of the writing is on a text page.  Consider defacing the addy with a permanent marker.
