£895.00

A catalogue from ‘The Art Of The Beatles’ exhibition that took place at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool between 4th May and 30th September 1984 that has been autographed on the front in black ballpoint pen by George Harrison. George has added the inscription ‘to Paul & Kathy love from’ above his name. It comes with a letter from the original recipient that reads ‘When I was a good deal younger, I hung out with stars from the music business, my stepsister was married to a 60’s pop star, Joe Brown.  I used to stay with them down near Henley on Thames, I also looked after their two children (the daughter you may have heard of, Sam Brown), a great time.  Vicky (sister) was also in the music business, their nearest neighbour and good friend was George Harrison.  Other neighbours/friends were also in the music business (Deep Purple, Free etc. etc).  I have actually been to George’s house for parties many times, chats and sit in his studio.  About the time mentioned, I worked in a design agency in Liverpool, this agency handled most of Liverpool/Merseyside Tourism work, a project was the Art of the Beatles Exhibition and programme = now up for auction = after this was completed and printed etc, I took my copy (I had done much of the design) along to George’s house – Friar Park, a 120 room Victorian neo-Gothic mansion in Henley-On-Thames purchase in January 197- by George.  This covered about 62 acres and included caves, underground passages, and an Alpine rock garden with a scale model of the Matterhorn.  In early 1972, George installed a 16-track recording studio in a guest suite, which became the recording headquarters for his company, Dark Horse Records. At that time I was on first name terms with George due to my sister and brother in law Joe, I took the book along and sat there with him while he signed it (I was married to Kathy at the time).  This was just one of the things he signed over a number of years for me, which I still have’. The catalogue measures 21cm x 28cm (8.3 inches x 11 inches). The condition is very good plus.
