New York: The John Day Company, 1930. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. 6 1/2 X 9 1/2 Inches. 341 PP. Very Good / Good. Item #3097
First printing in scarce original DJ. Early history of American ragtime, jazz and popular music. Original green cloth binding with nice deco decoration and title work embossed in black on front cover and spine. DJ price-clipped and previously mounted to thicker card stock. This "backing" to the DJ undoubtedly aided in the preservation. Light wear to edges and folds and large chip to top of DJ spine and rear panel.
