These 3 books..."Tom Brown's School Days"..."A Man About The House"..and "The Cabinda Affair" all belonged to Stu Sutcliffe. Stu gave these books and others to a neighbor at Gambier Terrace where he shared an apartment with Rod Murray and fellow Beatle John Lennon. The books were given away prior to leaving for The Beatles 1st trip to Hamburg Germany on August 16, 1960. One of the books has Stu's ink stained fingerprints on some of the pages. The 3 books...and others...can be seen
on the shelf over the fireplace.
The clipped signature was taken from one of Sutcliffe's sketch books and matted with a pic of him playing with The Beatles at the Top Ten Club in Hamburg in Spring 1961...
