Original Cellarful US paperback edition

[Cross-posted in mrbrianepstein Community]

This would be worth bidding on. It's the one I bought in the 60's and still have. Of course, I also have Martin Lewis's Rhino Rediscovery version, because his and Derek Taylor's commentary are priceless and a must-read for Beatle people.

postscript: I've also recently acquired a first-edition hardcover Cellarful, thru eBay.co.UK.
I was able to afford it because it didn't have the dustjacket (dammit!) and the edge of Chapter One's pages have bookworm damage not extending to the text itself. The bookworm doodlies are actually kind of unique and funny-looking ... but the book was worth it mainly because it contains pics that were never printed in the US editions!

(I had recalled reading that Brian became quite angry when he learned the US publishers did that to him ... changed the pics without his say-so. But there was nothing he could do about it.)
