Description

Rare Beatles Book by Parkinson, signed by the entire band

Signed book: The Beatles Book by Norman Parkinson. First printing. London: Hutchinson and Company, 1964. Softcover, 9 x 12.5, 30 pages. Signed and inscribed on the title page in black ink, "To Casey love from, George Harrson, xxx," "Ringo Starr, xxx," "Lots of love Paul McCartney, xxx," and "Love from good John Lennon, xxx." In fine condition, with some light soiling and general light handling wear. At his artistic apogee, Parkinson was considered Britain’s most important fashion photographer. During his tenure as Associate Editor of Queen magazine, he photographed many of the leading personalities of the 1960s, such as the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and model Jean Shrimpton. Fully signed copies of a first printing Beatles Book remain exceedingly scarce and are thus highly coveted by collectors.
