    "Mersey Beat" #32. A very nice copy of the October 4-18, 1962 issue, featuring a front-page ad for the Beatles' first single release, "Love Me Do/P.S. I Love You," which went on sale the day after this issue hit the stands. Other highlights include a full page ad for Little Richard's October 12 performance at the Tower Ballroom with the Beatles as an opening act, a photo of John Lennon and George Harrison receiving some of the first Gibson guitars to appear in England, and Page 3 photo of Ursula in dress from the debut James Bond movie "Doctor No." In Very Good to Fine condition with light tanning, some moderate wear to some interior pages, and small splits to the top and bottom of the spine. A very rare and fantastic item with some intriguing insight into early '60s pop culture.
