Pictorial wraps with white titles on brown background. Almost no wear except for three small red dots on bottom edge, possibly remainder marks, though I don't think so. Square with a secure binding. A solid NF copy. This large book is a massive and impressive survey of black musicians who recorded in the earliest days of the record industry, beginning ca.1890 and going through 1919. Many forgotten names are brought to life and their importance to American music established. ; B&W Illustrations; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; 634 pages View More...
