New York: Longmans Green & Co., 1938. First Edition / First Printing. Hardcover. Attractively produced tribute to George Gershwin edited and designed by Merle Armitage. Published the year after he died and includes numerous articles and illustrations. This is the limited edition, which is numbered and signed by Merle Armitage. Includes colophon page in the back which states this is copy #61. Good or better copy in original dust jacket. Front hinge starting with some signs of cracking to outer spine gutters, but the binding is holding firm. Rubbed at base of spine and tips. Jacket has tears and a few small nicks, with light stain on back panel at upper fold. No major loss, though. Interior contents are very good. Scarcer than the trade edition which was issued in red binding. Both are scarce in the dust jacket.
