Jim Morrison 1961 Yearbook

Original copy of the Compass, the annual for George Washington High School, Alexandria, Virginia (Volume 26), for 1961, hardcover, 8 x 10.75, 199 pages, signed in blue ballpoint at the top of the first page, “J. Morrison.” Morrison’s clean-cut image is located in the senior class photos. Remainder of the book bears many signatures and inscriptions to the book’s original owner. In good condition, with moderate to heavy areas of dampstaining and foxing throughout the book, resulting in some pages sticking together and areas of paper loss. However, Morrison’s page is largely unaffected by the exposure, with only mild dampstaining and rippling to page. This was the second high school Morrison attended, having transferred from Alameda High School in California to George Washington, due to his father being stationed in the Navy. Difficult to find even in in unsigned editions, this copy, boasting a very early Morrison signature, is the first signed yearbook we have ever offered. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.

Above the sketch Morrison signs, “J. Morrison,” and adds his initials under the sketch. In fine condition, with a few tack holes to edges and some scattered light toning to edges.
