    Beatles - It Was Twenty Years Ago Today Deluxe Signed Limited Edition #70/100 (Genesis Publications, 1987). If we have to explain the title, this book is probably not for you! English journalist, writer, and publicist Derek Taylor is best known for his association with the Beatles. He became their press officer in 1964 at the height of Beatlemania. He eventually moved to California and became a guiding force for such US groups as the Byrds, the Beach Boys, and Paul Revere and the Raiders. As the title of the book suggests, it's about the pivotal year of 1967 when all the aforementioned groups were enjoying immense success, and the Rock music world in general was at its zenith in terms of variety, inventiveness, and influence on society. Taylor's 287-page masterpiece is chockfull of photos, and the very limited Deluxe edition is signed by him. Bound in 3/4 leather and buckram, it comes in a colorful buckram slipcase. This copy is in Near Mint condition.
