    Beatles - Derek Taylor Fifty Years Adrift Deluxe Limited Edition #1154/2000 Signed by George Harrison and Taylor (Genesis Publications, 1984). The journalist who became the Beatles publicist and confidant shares his life in stories and pictures in this deluxe, signed limited edition from Genesis Publications. Beatles guitarist George Harrison edited and annotated the book, and has also signed the limited edition in brown fountain ink. Author Derek Taylor has added his signature as well, in blue ballpoint on the edition numbering page. The book earned critical acclaim from The New York Times and other reviewers, and The Beatles Book Monthly described it as, "Probably the best Beatles-related volume ever." Handsomely finished in brown half-calf and brown cloth, with the title in gilt letters on red background, gilt line decoration on the calf and front cover sailing-ship design, and gilt edges, and in a sturdy slipcase. Included in the book are numerous photos, plus facsimiles of concert posters, tickets, contracts, and letters. No longer available from the publisher! Very Fine condition with light wear and scuffing to the spine and cover. COA from Heritage Auctions.
