About this Item: Author Published; (1938), 1938. Hard Cover. First Edition. Very good in blue cloth covered boards with black lettering on the spine and front board. Cloth is worn at tips and spine ends, and the blue color is faded, mainly on the front board and spine. The book has seven photographs, and in this copy all have been removed and attached into a small booklet with a piece of scotch tape. There are also two copies of a photograph of Bob Wills, same size as the photos from the book, which may have been meant to be a frontispiece (the page facing the title page reads: "Portrait of Bob Wills May Either Be Framed Or Pasted Here"). The front hinge is cracked, and the half title page is still attached but loosely so. One the front pastedown in Bob Wills' hand is written "From/Bob Wills/To" then in a different hand is written "Dorothy White". The front endpaper is signed by 17 members of the Texas Playboys (list to follow). A stamp on the title page reads: "Presented on Occasion of Tulsa Chamber of Commerce Open Forum Honoring Bob Wills February 14, 1941". The signatures, in order from top to bottom are as follows: Everett Stover, C. Dennenfelser, L. D. House, Tommy Duncan, Lewis Tierney, "Son" Cag Lansford [Bob Wills' cousin], Leon McAuliffe, Jamie "Mac" McIntosh, Don Harlan, Wayne Johnson, Gene Tomlins, Robert (Zeb) McNally, Tubby Lewis, Eldon Shamblin, Al Stricklin, Hoopie McCray, Darrell Jones. Some of the signers were long-time members of the Texas Playboys, others may have been more temporary. But all signatures were almost certainly obtained at the 1941Chamber event, when Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys were at the height of their popularity, being broadcast over Tulsa radio station KVOO and playing regularly at Cain's Ballroom, also in Tulsa.
