Description


German pressing of Marley's Uprising album signed and inscribed on the front cover in blue ballpoint, "To Stephnie, all the Best Wishes, Happy Christmas, Love, Bob Marley." Marley has traced over his signature a couple of times to make it bolder. In fine condition, with aforementioned tracing over of signature. The record is included. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the original recipient which reads, in part: "We have a house in Rottach-Egern on Lake Tegern (Bavaria)...that we used to rent out as a vacation house. At one point an English doctor came to us and rented the house for a cancer patient and several other people...my parents learned that it was dealing with Bob Marley, who was undergoing cancer treatment with the former 'miracle doctor' Dr. Issels. The doctor had rented the house for several weeks...Bob Marley probably left the house in the dark early in the morning to go to Dr. Issel's clinic and returned in the dark late in the evening...My mother explains that the house had been totally overheated to the point that the balconies were warped! Bob Marley...moved to somewhere else. At that time, we had only seen his mother and his entourage, since other opportunities still had to be regulated. My mother asked for an autograph for her children and then we got these albums (Kaya for my sister and Uprising for me, Stephanie)." Issels, known for his controversial alternative cancer therapy regimen, treated Marley for several months in late 1980 until a few days prior to Marley's untimely death at age 36. Ex. Christie's, 2006.
