Graded conservatively. 1943 Commodore US edition as taken directly from the contemporaneous French edition. Hardcover, no dust jacket, well faded cloth covers, hard to read the cover print, especially the spine. Intact never the less! Owner bookplate on inside front cover. Pages rather grayishly discolored, as you would expect, due to aging.

Charles Delaunay, one of the fathers of "le jazz hot," compiled this essential reference. It traces the historical development of jazz until 1930, and provides an alphabetical listing of recordings made since that date up until the book's publication.
