Bob Dylan – Signed 1st Edition ‘Chronicles, Vol. 1’ / Autographed 1 Month After Release / With Roger Epperson COA
An extremely rare first edition of Bob Dylan’s acclaimed memoir Chronicles, Volume One, signed by Dylan just one month after the book’s release.
This is one of only a handful of genuine signed copies of Chronicles we’ve seen, and the only one where we can date the signature to just after the book’s issue. Authentic signed copies are scarce and valuable, and the vast majority offered for sale are unfortunately forgeries. We’ve even seen a well known West Coast rare book dealer selling a copy ‘signed at a Dylan in-store signing’– something that absolutely never took place.
This mint condition copy was signed on November 18, 2004 –six weeks after Chronicles October 5 release–for an employee of the Courtyard Marriott Hotel in Durham, New Hampshire. Dylan performed that night at the University of News Hampshire/Durham, and was staying at the hotel.
Recordmecca’s Jeff Gold is a well known Dylan handwriting expert who appraised The Bob Dylan Archive for Dylan’s management, and was a curatorial consultant and major lender to the traveling museum exhibition Bob Dylan’s American Journey: 1956-1966.
With Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity, signed by Jeff Gold, a letter from the hotel employee who obtained the autograph, and a letter of authenticity from noted music autograph expert Roger Epperson.
A superb and absolutely authentic Dylan collectible.
