About this Item

Important and highly collectible copy of The Big Bands by George T. Simon Though the condition of the book and dust jacket are only fair in condition (the book is loose from its spine and is dusty and the DJ is chipped, faded and worn), there are some documents contained in it which make it very collectible. The book is from the library of Jorge Fasola, a band leader from the 1950s. The end paper is stamped: "Jorge Fasola Orchestra New York Miami" and Fasola's name is inscribed on the same page with the added words "Miami, Fla. 1969." Tucked inside the book were four items which will be included with the book: the first is a sheet of paper containing the Committee minutes for a Naples 1985 Concert Band Meeting; the second is a vintage Time Magazine bookmark inserted between pages 148-149; the third is a letter written to Fasola on June 24, 1997 from someone who signs the letter, "Love, Amy" and who thanks Fasola for a gift of a watch and tells him she has a new boyfriend--Fasola has underlined in red ink the words from the letter "His name is Cory and we have been dating for almost 5 months"; the fourth is a small sheet of notebook paper with Artie Shaw's name and address in Newbury California written by hand. Foreword by Frank Sinatra. STATED FIRST PRINTING. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 000015
