B42465 – Genesis Publications George Harrison Twice Signed Fifty Years Adrift Book (UK)


Derek Taylor’s colourful autobiography packed with glorious pieces of memorabilia from his early days as a journalist to his term as Beatles publicist and great friend and beyond. Written by Derek Taylor and edited and annotated by George Harrison, it is a lasting testament to the genius, wit and insight of two great men. An early working title had been ‘And We All Shine On’ but the title was finally taken from a Liverpudlian expression. Fifty Years Adrift was the subject of glowing reviews including a fabulous one in The New York Times, while The Beatles Book Monthly described it as, ‘Probably the best Beatles-related volume ever’. The book is bound in brown half-calf and brown cloth, the title is in gilt letters on red background, gilt line decoration on the calf and front cover sailing ship design and gilt edged pages.

This copy is No. 964 of 2000 limited edition copies, each signed by both George Harrison and Derek Taylor. Unusually, George Harrison has added an additional signature to this copy. Above his signature George has written ‘To Willi best wishes’. Also included is a letter from the publisher and an excerpt of the book. A portion of a reproduction Yellow Submarine premiere ticket is stapled to the letter and a portion of a reproduction A Hard Day’s Night premiere ticket is stapled to the excerpt.

The condition of the slipcase and book is excellent.
