Title: Halftone photograph of all four Beatles, signed by each of them, and inscribed to Liberace ("Liber-archie") Author: Place: Publisher: Date: [1964] Description: Halftone photograph of the four members of the seminal pop band standing on a platform, in pea jackets or leather coats, signed and inscribed in ink. This is a page from the Tour Book Concert Program for the Beatles' first nation-wide U.S. tour in 1964, with pictures on the verso as well. 30.5x30.5 cm. (12x12"). Iconic photo of the Fab Four, inscribed by George Harrison "To Liber-archie best wishes from the Beatles," below which each of the band members has signed, over their image, "John Lennon (a band)"; "George Harrison"; "Ringo Starr"; "Paul McCartney (a fan)" - the "band" and "fan" offering a humorous rhyming counterpart. "Liber-archie" would BE the entertainer, pianist and showman Władziu Valentino Liberace, known simply by his last name. Undoubtedly they inscribed the image to Liberace at the time of their August 1964 show in Las Vegas, where the pianist regularly performed. A rare and desirable image, wittily inscribed and signed by all four members of the most influential and popular pop/rock band of all time. Lot Amendments Condition: Left edge a little rough where removed from the probram; very good. Item number: 244616
