Near fine in fine dust jacket, comes with a CD with color images of 1000 labels. The CD is often missing. This encyclopedia is divided into two main sections, I, labels, and II, companies. For example, many labels used Bridgeport Die & Machine Company to actually press their records. The labels are described in the first part of the book, and the companies like Bridgeport Die are described in the second section. So many labels were consolidated under other labels, which were themselves resold, that tracing the history of them is difficult, but a number of flow charts are appended to bring clarity to this situation. References + legal citations round out the Appendices.
