The Beatles have left an indelible mark on our music and culture. In the 1960s, they swept the globe with their blend of pop, rock, blues, and psychedelics. They are the bestselling music act of all time and the progenitors of several music genres. It is not hyperbolic to say that every recording artist today is influenced by the Beatles. This is due to their incredible popularity, even over 50 years later, and the ways they affected the music industry. In this volume, the Beatles’ history and meteoric rise is described alongside numerous illustrations by Hunter Davies, the acclaimed British journalist and biographer. It is the only authorized biography of the Beatles. Published at the height of their fame in 1968, it is a remarkable edition that is often listed among the best biographies on any music artist, and certainly one of the most important volumes for any Beatles collector.

This first American edition, first printing is in very good condition. In the original black cloth, near-fine with only fading to edges. Text block about-fine, only fading to front endpaper. In the original dust jacket, very good with some chipping, closed tears, and former bookseller sticker to back panel.

A very good first American edition of The Beatles: The Authorized Biography.
