Exceptionally rare uninscribed British copy of With the Beatles

Very rare With the Beatles album beautifully signed on the back cover in blue fountain pen by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. In fine condition, with some scattered light toning to back cover, and a mild album impression to front cover. The record is included. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the original owner of the album. Letter reads, in part: “The signed With the Beatles album was obtained for me back stage by a school friend on 13the December 1963 in Southhampton. Her father was an accountant at the Gaumount Cinema, Southhampton. In having such a great contact with her father she used to get free tickets and had access for all the pop stars autographs of the day.” Their appearance at the Gaumount was the second to the last stop on the band’s Autumn tour, where they played a total of 10 songs, including ‘I Saw Her Standing There,’ ‘She Loves You,’ ‘Roll Over Beethoven,’ and ‘Twist and Shout.’ Research indicates approximately 15 to 20 known band-signed examples of the album, as their skyrocketing popularity made it much more difficult to gain access to the band.
