    Two Unique German Beatles Fan Scrapbooks With A Collection of Beatles News Clippings (Germany 1960s and later).
    This lot centers on two astounding fan scrapbooks from the 1963/64 period - the unknown owner of which meticulously created fan items which verge on being works of art. The detail paid to arrangement, detail, and neatness goes beyond any fan scrapbook we have ever seen. There are two volumes, 32 pages each, filled completely with clippings and notations in perfect handwriting. All clippings and writings are in German, and it is a very early German take on the Beatles - the group's two years in Hamburg were still a recent phenomenon, and receive proud attention, as do their current activities - hit records, media appearances, etc. Each A4 sized, one titled "Die Beatles" (I), the other "THE BEATLES" (II) and in Excellent condition. These two scrapbooks are a fascinating time capsule of a particular time and place. Also includes approximately three dozen German newspaper and magazine clippings about and related to the Beatles, many from Hamburg, and some with evidence of note/scrapbook mountings, yellowed but in Very Good condition consistent with age. From the Uwe Blaschke Beatles Collection.
