First edition. This copy inscribed on the front free endpaper; “For my dear old friends Jerry & Claire … may you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it! Ralph Berton.” Berton knew Beiderbecke, and idolized him, as a child, and the book is very much a personal memoir of the era, as well as a personal view of the man and his music. And none the worse for that.

Octavo, original brown cloth, title to spine in gold and copper. In the dust jacket. 16 plates. Very good in slightly rubbed jacket.
