      This page lists Music Reference Books either published by Rolling Stone Books (Wikipedia), or books by other publishers with "Rolling Stone" in their title. This is not meant to be an exhaustive list of every Music Reference book ever published like this. It is just a list of every book I own "{A}" or have personally referenced in local Wisconsin libraries.

  8. #6i - Miller, Jim   {A} - cover scans
          "The Rolling Stone Illustrated History of Rock & Roll, 1st ed."

    There seems to be 2 different printings of this book with different covers and in different sizes, 14.5 x 10.9" and 10.5 x 8.4". The copy I just bought is 14.5 x 10.9" (large) and is pictured at 0-394-40327-4, with a more complete view at front cover scan, but the 10.5 x 8.4" (small) printing is pictured at 0-394-73238-3 (ISBN-13: 978-0-394-73238-1). What is confusing is that the large printing I have has both ISBNs on the copyright page, see: copyright page scan, but the sizes Amazon describes for the two printings are reversed. Is there really two different sizes for this 1st edition and is the contents the same for both sizes?
