J.H. Buckbee banjos were the first mass produced banjos in the U.S., having been made from the early 1860's until the 1890's. Reginald Bacon's 224 page book is the first and only work to explore the history of this company, and its relationship with New York City in the 19th century. Along with revealing new details about J.H. Buckbee, the prolific "Henry Ford of Banjos" in the 1880s, banjo history enthusiasts will appreciate the research backed with 297 endnotes; 230 photos, illustrations, and maps; and appendices on the research methodology and banjo restoration. 6" x 9" 224 pp. Subtitled "The Story of a Banjo, Its Maker, and Its Player". Each of our first shipment of these books has been autographed by the author.
