The Numbered Boxed Signature Edition, number 311 of 1,000 copies only, signed by Gabrielle Drake and Cally Callomon on the limitation slip mounted on the title page; photograph portfolio signed by Julian Lloyd on the limitation slip. This is a superb copy. Nick Drake: Remembered for a While is not so much a memoir or biography as a compendium of a life, curated by his loving sister, the actor Gabrielle Drake. In essays, reminiscences and accounts, childhood friends, musicians, producers, college pals and others excavate their relationships with her brother. What emerges from the disaffected haze of postbeatnik hippiedom is the clear ambition of a postwar generation - the 20th century's first young British men who did not have to go off to war - and a poetic vision of youth (Fleming).Original red cloth-backed yellow boards, titles in black to front board paper label, colour endpapers. Original vinyl in matching publisher's card slipcase. 3 black and white photographs printed on thick white paper and housed in matching portfolio.
All housed in publisher's red cloth solander box with titles in black to front board paper label. John Fleming, Review, The Irish Times, 7 February, 2015.
