      Brian Rust's book is in its sixth edition, under the title Jazz & Ragtime
      Records 1897-1942, published by Mainspring Press, Highlands Ranch, CO, who
      can be found on the web at <www.mainspringpress.com>.

      In this group's archive you'll find some previous discussion of the relative
      merits of various editions and the possibility of obtaining one of the
      earlier editions rather more cheaply than the current price!
