Rare Signed Copy of John Lennon Book Sells for over $5,600

Some of you must remember the bizarre and twistedly delightful, “In His Own Write”, a book by John Lennon released in 1964, and if not, then you’ll want to check it out.

According to ultimateclassicrock.com,. a rare first-edition of the book signed by the man himself just brought in big bucks, over $5,600, in fact, after some 47 bids on eBay.

John may have been a ground-breaking musician and musical idol, but he was also a master of the ridiculous and absurd in both the spoken and written word, and had the gift of being able to turn those words and phrases inside out to present the creative humor he so loved.

No doubt any respectable English teacher was appalled, and all the better.

John, of course, was also an artist, and his weird sketches only added to the sometimes whimsical and often dark fun.

An example of his writing from the book:

I was bored on the 9th of Octover 1940 when, I believe, the Nasties were still booming us led by Madolf Heatlump (who only had one). Anyway they didn’t get me. I attended to varicous schools in Liddypol. And still didn’t pass — much to my Aunties supplies. As a member of the most publified Beatles my (P, G, and R’s) records might seem funnier to some of you than this book, but as far as I’m conceived this correction of short writty is the most wonderfoul larf I’ve every ready.

God help and breed you all.

I have a copy of this book that never ceases to amuse me and if it was signed (and even though it’s not) I’d never part with it.
