LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Gerald Duckworth & Co, London, 1976. hardcover, 8 3/4" x 5 1/2", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, pocket, barcode etc. Sun fading to jacket spine. Front jacket flap mounted to verso of frontispiece. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD dust jacket. Red cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine, photographic portrait as frontispiece (Beecham, aged 70), 9 b&w photograhic illustrations. 'Times' Obituary, Appendices (recordings, concerts, operas, bibliography), Index. [This Work issued privately, 1973, under different title.] Lancashire born and bred, Beecham carried his north-country vigour and directness into every minute of his immensely busy life. His conducting repertoire was emormous, and largley carried in his head; his control of his orchestral players was legendary, almost hypnotic. His short biography is here followed by a unique collection of personal tributes from a wide spectrum of proteges.
