It's amazing what you can find in a charity shop. The vendor for this item picked up this music textbook in a Liverpool charity shop for just 20p.
The book is stamped Quarry Bank School Book Room and the very first name in the book is a certain J Lennon of form 4C, who would have been around 14 or 15 at the time. The vendor has had this early signature verified by an expert before bringing it to us for auction.
What is interesting is that the book passed through the hands of a few more pupils at the school, including some at the height of The Beatles fame before it found its way into the charity shop. It proves it's worth taking a good look through books and the like in these places as you never know what may turn up!
The current estimate on this item is £2200-£2700
