Includes a letter of provenance by the dedicatee, who was introduced to the group when her partner, a BBC cameraman, was filming the Beatles in Manchester in 1963. George Harrison, a keen amateur photographer, asked her partner for photography advice, including recommendations for camera brands, and at the cameraman's request, they signed this album for her. In her possession until November 2023.

Condition
