INSCRIBED by Handy on front free endpaper to previous owner and dated Oct. 5 1926 in New York. Two newspaper clippings also pasted to ffe, one an announcement of an event "in celebration of the book's publication" at which Handy was to lead the orchestra, the other a brief article reporting his hospitalization after an injury; these clippings have discolored the endpapers. There is also laid in loose a large original drawing of a jazz drummer, unsigned, but quite accomplished.

Cloth at spine ends fraying a bit and with short tears, lighter wear to corners, light insect damage and soiling to text block edges, light soiling and rubbing to covers, including a few small faint waterspots (largest ~3/8" diameter near upper rear corner). No dust jacket.; B&W Illustrations; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 180 pages; Signed by Author
