Flawless brand new 1st Edition/1st Printing hardcover in brand new dust jacket with brand new CD *SIGNED* by the author on the title page with the additional exhortation "De Blooz 4ever!" and the date (2013, the date of publication) without inscription to any particular person. "William Stout's Legends of the Blues celebrates the glorious men and women who created the enduring legacy and the unique sound of the blues. Bill's wonderful ink and watercolor paintings of legendary blues musicians beautifully capture the distinct personalities of these amazing and important American artists. Stout's portraits give us the performance craziness of Screamin' Jay Hawkins, the haunted gaze of Robert Johnson, the power of Howlin' Wolf, and the sly grin of a young Bo Diddley." -- John Landis, Director of The Blues Brothers. We will wrap this great collector's copy in bubble-wrap to protect the corners and ship it in a sturdy box to ensure safe delivery. Bookseller Inventory # ABH285
