20/10/2015 : Eleanor Rigby's Bible to go under the hammer.
In our forthcoming auction on the 4th November we will be offering for sale a historic item of significance to Beatles collectors the world over, namely the personal miniature bible once the property of Eleanor Rigby.
Only one other item bearing her signature has ever come to market before and this item promises to generate huge interest. This tiny item bears a smudged signature of E.Rigby to the inside front, and has her full name E.R.Whitfield inside the back cover. In the same lot we will also be offering the receipt and deeds to the family grave in Woolton Parish Church Liverpool. This has come down through the family who inherited Eleanors half-sisters estate following their death some years ago so the provenance is excellent.
Although the link between the ‘real’ Eleanor Rigby and the subject of the world famous song of that title will forever be shrouded in mystery, this item is of huge significance both locally and to the pop world in general.
Auction: Wednesday 4th November 2015 The Liverpool Saleroom, 18 Jordan Street, Liverpool, L1 0BP.
