With dust jacket, 132 pages, illustrated. Ghostwritten by his assistant Derek Taylor, this was Epstein's autobiography; he wrote it at an early age in order to: "...put down at an early stage an accurate account of the emergence of the Beatles and other artistes from my own point of view. So much has been said that is exaggerated, inaccurate, extravagant, and open to misinterpretation that I thought that a detailed account could only help..." Light toning on the signed page from long-term storage with a bookmark. Dust jacket Good; book Fine. Included with the book are a 5" x 7" photo of Epstein, and a photocopied reproduction of an early Epstein/Beatles business card from Liverpool. From the Uwe Blaschke Beatles Collection. COA from Heritage Auctions.
