About this Item

Some light wear on edges, corners, spine ends and surface. Small stain on front foredge, along with general and expected aging. Book is square and binding is secure. This is a solid copy of the stated 1st Printing of Handy's autobiography. Musical transcriptions of some songs are used as illustrations. Even though Handy was called the "Father of the Blues," modern writers often dismiss, unwarrantedly, that title. In many ways, Handy was exactly what the title suggests. We also have a very attractive autographed photo of Handy. ; B&W Illustrations; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 317 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 14580
