        Beatles SIGNED by fab four with Roy Young and Bernard Boyle

      1962 - Beatles Rare Early Signatures with Roy Young and Bernard Boyle in Matted Display (Hamburg, 1962). Also signed by the founder of the first-ever Beatles Fan Club (and a sometime Beatles roadie) Bernard Boyle. A 5.75" x 4" deckle-edged B&W glossy photo of the group with instruments in their black leather outfits. On the back is printed "With Best Wishes from Paul Pete John George. The Beatles. April 5th 1962". Around the text are clear blue ballpoint signatures: "für Christa von George Harrison", "für Christa von Paul McCartney", "Roy Young" (signed twice), "für Christa von John Lennon", "Best Wishes from Pete Best", and "Best Wishes from Bernard Boyle". These photos were given out at a Cavern Club concert honoring the Official Fan Club on the above date. Double matted with an 8.75" x 6" B&W photo of the Beatles on stage with Roy Young at the Star Club to an overall 11.75" x 15.75". These autographs are of German origin. Minor wear and some light fingerprints at the bottom edge, overall Fine. From the Uwe Blaschke Beatles Collection. COA from Heritage Auctions. Roy Young was a British Rock singer and pianist who had some success in the late fifties on various Pop music TV shows and touring with Cliff Richard and the Shadows. His records on Fontana and Ember during this period had only modest sales. In 1961, he decided to move to Hamburg with its burgeoning music scene and took up residence in the Top Ten Club, performing with Tony Sheridan, Ringo Starr, and others. When the Star-Club opened in April 1962, he moved to the new venue where he regularly played piano and sang background vocals for the Beatles. According to various interviews, Young claims that he had an offer to become a member of the group: "I remember coming off stage one night and Brian Epstein, the Beatles' manager, was standing at the side of the stage," he recalls. "Brian said, 'may I have a word? The lads asked me to ask if you would be interested in going back to England and join them to get a record contract'. "I told him it was an incredible offer but I would have to think about it. If I had been smart enough there is no doubt what I would have done." Instead, Roy says, he took the decision to stay in Hamburg. "I went back to Brian and said 'I'm going to decline your offer because I'm under contract with the Star-Club'. I could have got out of it. But I'd walked out of the Top Ten Club (another Hamburg club in the Beatles story) and I thought 'I just can't do it again'." (The Oxford Times UK interview, April 12, 2012). According to the Mersey Beat (Issue 5, August 31, 1961) it was Bernard Boyle who formed the first-ever Fan Club for the Beatles. He was a huge admirer of the group from the early days, even to the point of losing his job for spending too much time at lunchtime sessions at the Cavern. "I talked to Bob Wooler and kept saying to him, 'This group's the f**king greatest ever!'-so he introduced me to them. I was over the moon. I looked up to all of them: I was young, naive, wide-eyed, and I thought these guys were the greatest in the world. My one-hour lunch breaks from the office got longer and longer until eventually I went back to find I'd been fired. So I started doing occasional jobs for the Beatles, to help Neil. I'd carry the gear and go to gigs with them in the van. I was just a kid but I wormed my way in and they didn't mind." (Tune In: The Beatles: All These Years by Mark Lewisohn, page 464). Overall, a fabulous early photograph with early authentic signatures by the Beatles. Offers and trades considered. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Dialogo entre Venus y Priapo

      La Arboleda Perdida, 1962. Brossura (wrappers) Un disegno originale dell'Autore in copertina (ogni volume reca un disegno diverso). Stampato in occasione del sessantesimo compleanno del poeta. 8vo. pp. 14. Ottimo (Fine). Prima ed. di 29 es. numerati e firmati dall'A. Empujan, en fin, vientos de libertad marina a la poesía de Rafael Alberti llevándola a explorar todos los espacios de la historia, de la mitología o de la experiencia humana: "Yo te miraba, oh Cádiz, bahía de los mitos / .. / Canas de antigüedad, tus estelares fábulas, / tus solares historias, / oh gaditano mar de los perdidos / Atlantes, vesperales jardines de la espuma, / islas desvanecidas del Ocaso!" Los pobres pescadores que salen del Guadalete hacia el mar son los mismos que arribaban a Tarsis en busca de oro y plata y estaño. El mar resume la historia y el mar compendia el sueño. ¿Qué escenario mejor podría soñarse para el encuentro amoroso de Venus y Príapo que el escenario del mar de Cádiz? Uno de los más formidables poemas amorosos de la literatura universal, de ese Diálogo entre Venus y Príapo, acontece en esa bahía: «Amor! La noche se desvae. / Nos baña el mar. (Oh luz!. El mundo canta. / Cae la luna.. El viento..)»

        The Spy Who Loved Me.

      London: Jonathan Cape,, 1962. Octavo. Original dark grey boards, titles to spine in silver, dagger design to front board in silver and blind, red endpapers. With the dust jacket. A little spotting to edge of text block, faint tape marks to endpapers. A very good copy in the bright jacket with tape marks to verso. First edition, first impression. In many ways this is one of the most ambitious of Fleming's Bond books. It purports to be the first hand testimony of a 23 year old Canadian woman with whom Bond has an ill-fated affair. In time-honoured literary tradition Fleming claims to have been sent Michel's manuscript account of which he is merely the editor. Michel therefore gets a spurious credit as co-author on the title page. This novel is the only Bond book to be written in the first person.

        Liber Amoris or The New Pygmalion.

      London: George Routledge & Son, Ltd.,. Small octavo. Original green cloth titles gilt to spine. Spine rolled, ends and corners rubbed, very good condition. E. M. Forster's copy, inscribed to him on the front free endpaper "Morgan Forster, from Christopher Morris, May 1962 with affection and esteem", with the "This book belongs to E. M. Forster". Morris was a History fellow at King's College, Cambridge, from 1930-93. He and his wife Helen, likewise a Cambridge don, but teaching English literature, frequently hosted Forster on his return visits to his alma mater. The Liber Amoris was described by Thomas de Quincey as Hazlitt's "explosion of frenzy... to empty his overburdened spirit" after an ill fated infatuation with his landlord's daughter. The tragic tale of frustrated love would no doubt have appealed to Forster's sensibility. This New Universal Library edition is a verbatim reprint of the 1823 first edition.
