Book has only very light, general wear and aging. It is square and securely bound. Former owner's small red stamp on ffep. VG to VG+. Jacket has some small chips and tears with short creases near the edges in a couple of spots. Still VG- to VG. This collection of essays from Balliett, who was Jazz Ciric for the NY Times, was published in 1959. It is fun to read because of his insights when much of the music he discusses was brand new and his occasional lack of insight -- we all make mistakes. ; Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall; 237 pages View more info
