preface by author, suggested gramophone records, index and a chronological graph-Chart of European art-music. There is an occasional music notation throughout the text. At the rear of the book there is a six page fold out graph, showing the timeline of European composers and artists. Plain card cover with black coloured titles to the front panel and backstrip. "This book is designed primarily for those who like music sufficiently to go and listen to it occasionally, for those who listen to music on the radio and on the gramophone. To write about music intelligibly and intelligently is difficult. To read about it is apt to be depressing. A certain number of technical terms are unavoidable; for this necessity I apologise. I have been compelled to assumed that the reader knows where Middle C is on the piano and that he is conversant with the principles of music notation by means of a system of lines and spaces in which the various symbols are written. But it is not necessary for an understanding of this book that the reader is able to go to the piano and play music at sight." – from the preface page 9. Pelican Books A 68. Minor creasing to the book corners with rubbing of the book edges and panels. Browning to the book panels, backstrip and to the textblock edges and pages. A few foxing spots to the textblock edges and book panels. Some rubbing of the backstrip. Size: 12mo (standard paperback). 159, [1] pages,. Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Illustrator: Illustrations. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Music; Inventory No: 0116259.
