Lot 812: Fantastic leatherbound guest book from the famous Just Looking boutique located at 88 Kings Road in Chelsea, 8.25 x 5.5, signed inside by over 175 notable individuals between 1968 and 1973, including John and Yoko in late 1969 in blue ballpoint, "John Lennon, Bag 1" and "Yoko Ono Lennon." Other signers include: Aretha Franklin, Bill Wyman (2), Carl Wilson, Peter Frampton, Peter Noone, Keith Emerson, Dusty Springfield, Maynard Ferguson, Bianca Jagger, Natalie Wood (2), Lauren Bacall, Sidney Poitier, Jack Lemmon, Mel Ferrer, Jack Weston, Joan Collins, Twiggy, Raquel Welch, Mia Farrow, Ursula Andress, Claudia Cardinale, Britt Ekland, Shirley Bassey, Claire Bloom, Hildegarde, Diana Rigg, and Stirling Moss. Repaired separations to binding and some scattered soiling inside, otherwise fine condition. John and Yoko got married on March 20, 1969, and soon introduced their concept of 'Bagism' to the world. Lennon also created his controversial 'Bag One' artwork and presented it to Yoko as a wedding gift, making this an especially relevant and rarely seen variation of Lennon's autograph. Combining Lennon with dozens of other icons of the era, this is an extraordinary piece.
