John Lennon In His Own Write, Jonathan Cape, 1964, a rare signed First Edition, the signature obtained on the 18th June 1965 by Alain Blaikley at the BBC during Lennon's interview with Cliff Michelmore on the Tonight programme. Alan Blaikley (1940-2022) was a songwriter responsible for a string of international hits during the 1960s and 1970s. From 1962-1964 he worked for the BBC as a trainee producer on the Tonight programme and subsequently continued to work for them on a freelance basis. Lennon appeared on the programme to talk about his latest book A Spaniard in the Works (Cape, 1965) and Alan Blaikley got him to sign a copy of the teleplay for that evening's show. Alan then gifted the autograph to his sister Marian and it was affixed to her copy of In His Own Write which bears her signature above that of John Lennon's. The book shows some peripheral wear and pp.9-14 are partly detached, requiring attention. The lot includes Marian's first edition copy of A Spaniard in the Works with her ownership inscription dated 28th June 1965.
