Malcolm Shaw, Editor
Published by Mainspring Press, 2002. Hardcover Book in Two Volumes, 1,971 pages. No Dustjacket as received from publisher.
Books are in gently used E- condition, bottom right corner ding on front cover of both volumes as received from publisher., some light shelf wear. No writing, tears or dog eared pages. Very Clean.
Volume 2 includes an artist index. Volume 3 is not included as it had not been published when I originally purchased this set. Volume 3 is a 124-page song title index which is readily available online for $16.99 or less. I never felt the need to purchase it when it was published some time after I received my two volumes.
An essential reference for jazz, ragtime and hot dance band records up to 1942.
