Description

    George Gershwin. George Gershwin's Song-Book. New York: Random House, 1932.

    First edition. Number 78 of 300 copies signed by Gershwin and the illustrator, Alajalov on the limitation page. Folio. 167 pages plus limitation.

    Publisher's full blue morocco with gilt titles on the spine and boards. Fine blue endpapers. Housed in an original issue blue paper slipcase. An additional separate piece inserted in the end pocket. Moderate shelf wear and dust-soiling to the dust jacket. Spine ends and corners noticeably rubbed. Spine folds worn. Minor toning to the textblock, with mild foxing on the edges and toward the rear endpapers, not affecting the signatures on the limitation page. The slipcase shows a great deal of wear, with the spine separating, but it is still intact. Overall, a good copy of a truly rare Gershwin book signed by the master himself.
