About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for V-Discs: A History and Discography by Sears, Richard S..


Near-Fine condition 1st Edition/1st Printing hardcover with extra tough library binding. No dust jacket as issued. This is the ultimate compendium (over 1100 pages) of useful information and history regarding the U.S. Army's morale-boosting V-Disc recording project which resulted in the creation of many great 12-inch gramophone recordings of popular bands and musicians between 1941 and 1949. Wildly popular with the troops, these records have become increasingly valuable collector's items today. This 1st printing is immaculate inside with no creases, marks or damage to pages. Pages are not tan. The exterior spine shows a few very faint spots but the front and back covers are spotless. None of the corners are bumped and there is no rub wear. There is a tiny sprinkling of foxing on one small area of the outer page edges - barely noticeable. No other flaws. We will bubble-wrap the book, insure it (at least within the United States) and ship it in a sturdy box to ensure safe delivery. Bookseller Inventory #
