Beatles

THE MOST FAMOUS BAND OF ALL TIME

A selection of work from the masters of song that have been up for auction at the premiere auction houses like Christie's and Bonhams. As an unofficial site, I'm trying to make this as useful as possible for a Beatles resource by including as much as I can. For a band with a body of work as iconic as their's his it's quite hard so would really appreciate any help. I want to do all the prices realised in chronological order of date item created.

The pages don't make any money - indeed I have to subsidise them through sales of memorabilia etc.. So I have to find the time around getting money in to do these pages.

I do think it's important to have a catalogue of his prices realised etc.. So if you can help with any details on releases then I will put them here. Any info. on the release, including date and country published, would be very useful. You can e-mail me here ihuppert5@aol.com

Thanks.
