the complete contents of the original book, deleting only the introductory
preface and incidental comments by the editor of the print edition. Royalties

Rust's death earlier this year was a great loss to the collecting
community, but his legacy will be carried on by Mainspring Press,
to which he assigned exclusive world rights to publish
all subsequent revisions and editions of Jazz Records. You can read about the new Jazz Records-7 initiative in the Mainspring Newsletter.
