First American Edition
Alfred A. Knopf [New York]
8vo (381 pages, with 24 pages of musical transcriptions, index, photographs.)
Hardcover (with Dust Jacket) [Patterned yellow cloth]
A useful history of jazz that was once considered definitive but has since been supplanted.

Contents fine, with browning to page edges and an ink gift inscription on the front free endpaper.
