This is a fat heavy book. Well printed and arranged. 

All the major composers are represented with full lists of their compositions.

A remarkable collection of "Unknown" composers too with 

short biographies. Musical jargon explanations are very complete.

For 1964 - the latest edition, it is a truly remarkable collection

for its time and to the serious musical scholar a good substitute for

Grove or the Oxford dictionaries. Well worth the cost in my opinion..
