Harcourt, Brace, Harvest Book, New York, publication date not stated but likely late 50's, with cover illustration by Jules Maidoff, reprint, trade paperback. First published in 1939, a now classic collection of essays by the most influential jazz writers of the day; arguably the first book published in the U.S., to treat jazz as worthy of serious cultural, historical and critical appreciation, with over fifty b&w archival photos. Very good in illustrated wraps, lightly rubbed and edge worn, spine is slightly creased and sunned, otherwise a tight, clean, unmarked copy. J611
