A useful history of jazz that was once considered definitive but has since been supplanted. This is a very good copy of the First Edition in a dust jacket that is lightly creased, with fractional loss along upper spine edge and a closed tear on front face. Contents fine, with browning to page edges and an ink gift inscription on the front free endpaper.
