This sale comprises the most extensive collection of John Lennon’s original artwork, autograph manuscripts and corrected typescripts ever to come to auction. The material relates to In His Own Write and A Spaniard in the Works, the two books Lennon wrote and illustrated at the height of Beatlemania in 1964-1965. The collection was given by Lennon to the visionary publisher Tom Maschler, who had persuaded Lennon to write a book of his comic verses and worked closely with him on the production of the books, and comes directly from his private collection.
Highlights from the sale will be on view in Austin, Texas, 13-14 March, and in London, 21-24 March.
