Anything attached (even literally) to John Lennon is valuable. And one lucky book owner just cashed in for just over $5,600 by selling a signed first-edition of Lennon’s quirky 1964 book, In His Own Write, on eBay, as Ultimate Classic Rock points out.
Forty-seven bidders battled for the beloved book, which (for the unacquainted) is an absolutely delightful glimpse into Lennon’s wacky imagination, blending childlike drawings with wacky short stories and poetry. The seller stated that the signed copy was a rare first-edition, while most signed copies floating around (stemming from a book signing back in April of 1964) are third pressings.
(It’s all pretty, pretty cool, but who in the world has that kind of spare cash sitting around?)
