University Of California Press, Berkeley, CA, 1977, First Edition, First Printing, Advance Reading Copy, with publisher's review copy card laid in. A comprehensive biography of the New Orleans clarinetist which also provides valuable historical insight into the continuing development of jazz in New Orleans after the closing of Storyville in 1917, suggesting that the music remained fluid and vital, even after some of its most famous exponents had "gone up the river". Small price label to front pastedown, otherwise fine, in yellow cloth boards, tight, crisp, clean, unmarked, in a near fine, clipped dust jacket, slightly rubbed, spine ends gently compressed, minimal edge wear, small closed tear to bottom edge of rear panel at hinge. Quite uncommon, fine copy. J709
