Bix. Man & Legend.New Rochelle, NY: Arlington House Publishers, 1974 Stock Code: 81501
First edition, first printing, of this uncommon and important biography. In his obituary of Sudhalter in the Washington Post, Terry Teachout described this as the "first jazz biography written to the standards of a serious study of a classical composer or other major historical figure."
Octavo, original red boards lettered in black on the spine. With dust jacket.
Numerous illustrations to the text from photographs, many full-page.
Some foxing to edges and endpapers, small bookshop ink-stamp to the front free endpaper, else a very good copy in slightly rubbed and chipped jacket with a few internal repairs, and amateurish - but not overly unsightly - restoration of the colour.
