This is the copy referred to by Mitchell in the popular reproduction of this book (2019). Years ago there was a fire north of Malibu. And his wife, Nadine, lived there, and I drove over to see them to make sure they were okay. Lot of their belongings in bags, and the bags were standing in the hallway of their house. As I walked in, I saw my Christmas. Of one of the bags. I couldn’t believe that was one of the. This is one of the few surviving copies of the original Christmas book Mitchell produced for her personal friends. According to all accounts, original copies of this edition have only been seen rarely in the last 50 years. This is an utmost rarity. In addition to Henry Lewy’s prolific recording involvement, Nadine Lewy was an avid follower and teacher of transcendental meditation at the time the Beatles were involved with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. The Lewy’s attended the meeting with the Beatles and the Maharishi, the founder of TM, in Paris, in 1967. Nadine later instructed Bob Dylan and the Beach Boys, among others, in transcendental meditation in the U. Condition: This copy in excellent. With only minor rubbing to the tips and edges, with one small stain on the spine (SEE PHOTOS). The interior was re-cased to strengthen the’perfect’ binding, which tends to allow pages to fall out. The book is now solid, with vibrant photos and beautiful, clear signatures. Mitchell made this book as a Christmas gift after the release of her highly acclaimed album, Blue , assisted by Lewy, when she was at the height of her creative powers. This book offers a connection with Mitchell at that point in her career. Buyers must pay within three days of sale. The item “Joni Mitchell MORNING GLORY ON THE VINE Original 1/100.
