Scarce signed copy of Billie Holiday's autobiography ''Lady Sings The Blues'', signed by Holiday. Published in 1956, the book spoke candidly about her struggles with alcoholism and racial inequality. It was also the blueprint for the 1972 film of the same name, which garnered Diana Ross an Academy Award nomination for her portrayal of Holiday. Published by Doubleday: Garden City: 1956, autobiography features a variety of candid photographs of Holiday to the front and rear pastedowns. Holiday signs in blue ink to the flyleaf: ''Stay Happy Cool / Always / Billie Holiday''. 250pp. book is bound in red cloth boards with the title, author and publisher written in black and white to spine. Measures 5.75'' x 8.5''. Toning to edges and slight wear to board edges. Light foxing to the flyleaf. Very good.
