I paid $59.95 plus shipping when I got mine in '96 or so. I've seen it at BookStar/Barnes&Noble too. I don't know how accurate it really is - that's a guess. I've followed threads where guys go on and on dissecting the first chord in Hard Days Night and the guitar parts in The End.  
There are some deeply layered bits and moments in their music, even early on. I think the book will give you a close enough answer. Imo, the greatest source of trouble was George Martin. He knew harmony and arranging inside and sometimes he would bang on the piano to punch things up and you can't quite hear it because it isn't a continuous piano part - stuff like that.

wow, prices have gone up. my brother gave me the black Beatles Complete songbook for my birthday back in the 80s and it probably cost $30 or $40 then.  
its a pretty good resource, though its definitely arranged for piano and not for guitar. most of the chords are listed in the first position and it has no tab.
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

"though its definitely arranged for piano and not for guitar."
Completely different product than what you're thinking about. This is full tabs, includes the shrill horn line from Penny Lane, etc. Tab, harmonies, et al.
