First Edition. Record in words and pictures of a coast-to-coast tour undertaken by the influential German broadcaster Berendt and leading Jazz photographer Claxton. Berendt’s radio show “Jazztime Baden-Baden” pioneered the popularisation of Jazz in post-War Germany. First published in German, only reissued in English in a revised edition in 2005. Uncommon in anything approaching collectible condition, especially in dust jacket.

Quarto. Original black cloth, title gilt to upper board and spine, in dust jacket. Numerous illustrations, a few in colour, coloured stylised “map” endpapers. Marginal browning as usual, but about very good in torn dust jacket, old tape repairs verso, pieces lacking from both upper and lower panel, but the typography on the upper panel largely complete.
