[solid copy, very light shelfwear, a touch of foxing to fore-edge; jacket moderately edgeworn, marred by a rather serious triangular pull-tear in the middle of the front panel (no paper loss but considerable associated creasing/scrunching), and another much smaller triangular pull-tear where the paper has been lost (resulting in a small hole in the jacket, but fortunately in an uncritical spot); original price on jacket scratched out with new price inked over; see additional note about jacket pull-tear]. "A musical record of America through half a century, told in the lively memoirs of an old timer who knew them all -- the people who wrote our songs, the singers and performers, the places where they were heard from Bowery to Broadway, the minstrels, burlesque queens, vaudeville stars, musical showfolk, movie and radio singers -- the all the songs they sang. Illustrated with over 200 photographs, playbills, song covers, words and music of famous songs." [Additional note about large pull-tear in front jacket panel: although the paper has been moved back into place, there has been no tape-repair, which means it would be possible for a paper conservationist/restorer to do quite a decent job of fixing it up, should you care to take the trouble. Considering the rarity of the jacket, it might just be worth it.]
