Brian Epstein's A Cellarful of Noise - Inscribed 1964 UK 1st DJ

Epstein, Brian

A Cellarful of Noise Souvenir Press [ 1964 ]


Inscribed by Brian Epstein to the front endpaper to his Grandmother ("Gangan"), with a letter of provenance from Brian's nephew. The book is firmly bound in slightly rubbed, bumped and marked blue cloth. The text block is toned, with minor marking and a distinct aroma of old tobacco smoke. The dust jacket is the original and not price clipped, it is slightly toned, grubby and nicked, with a number of closed tears. Epstein's account, albeit with the aid of a ghost-writer in the form of his assistant Derek Taylor, of his rise to the top of the British music industry, chiefly via his discovery and management of the Beatles, though with a nod to the other major artists of the period who benefitted from his talents as a manager and promoter. It is quite uncommon as a first edition and copies with personal inscriptions and such excellent provenance as this are rare.
