Pamphlet. First edition. Illustrated with photos of swing musicians. Nice cover illustration of a couple joyously dancing to swing music. Contains over 1500 words and phrases, with a test on the inside back cover asking questions such as: "Would you like to be described as having a COKE FRAME?" and "Have you ever heard of a PUSSY WITH A FLUID DRIVE?" Small scuff to front cover, else very good or better. A nice copy of a very scarce book from the heyday of the swing era.
