2 (Godrich, John) Carey, Dave; McCarthy, Albert J.; Ralph G. V. Venables Jazz Directory, Volume One
Fordingbridge Delphic Press 1949 First Edition; First Printing Softcover 
Wraps, a terrific association, being John Godrich's own copy, given to me by John right after the publication of the first edition of Blues and Gospel Records 1902-1942, compiled by John and R M W Dixon (1963). In the time between the 1949 publication of Jazz Directory (which never made it beyond Volume Six, Kl-Lo) , Jazz Directory was the only blues (and jazz) discography in existence. This copy is filled with hundreds of John's hand-written entries, from corrections to additions, from matrix numbers to record numbers. The quantity of his entries is mind-boggling.. The rear blanks are filled with additions, all in his hand. Occasionally, one finds tiny texts cut from printed sources, overlaying the original entry. The book itself has a spine reinforced by clear tape and is quite worn. It has short tears and a serious mended tear going across the entire rear wrap. My name stamp is on the first page and I have circled the matrix numberss for some items in my collection back in those early days. I had my own set of Volume two-six--Volume One was already very scarce, and those five volumes are also included in the sale. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 177 pp
