Circa 1950 Hank Williams songbook, titled Hank Williams’ Country Hit Parade, signed on the front cover by Williams and four members of the Drifting Cowboys (Williams’ band). Williams has signed the book “Best Wishes/Hank Williams” in blue ink (grading “9”) atop his image. The four additional signatures, all of which are scripted in pencil (averaging “8/9”) to the left of Williams’ image, are those of Cedric Rainwater (bass), Jerry Rivers (fiddle), Sammy Pruett (guitar), and Don Helms (steel guitar). The 48-page softcover book features sheet music for 20 Hank Williams songs, plus photos of the legendary country singer/songwriter. Williams’ signature is rare today because of his untimely death in 1953 at the age of 29. The book (9 x 12 inches) displays moderate handling wear, including light creases to the covers. In Very Good to Excellent condition overall. Full LOA from James Spence/JSA. Pre certified by Steve Grad and Brian Sobrero/Beckett Authentication. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
