This vintage soft covered book is titled the Straight System a Modern Method the Natural Way to Play Drums Lesson File. It is Copyright MCMXXIII by Edward B. Straight. It is a soft cover measuring 7 by 10 ¼ inches with 102 pages. It is well used with wear, stains, creases, Cover tear, writing, loose spine, loose pages, discoloration, rust to staples, margin notes. I found it is a hard to find book that is priced lower based on condition. It is complete from the Chart Music Publishing House Inc. Chicago in good usable condition.
