      This page lists books by the late Brian Rust, as author or co-author, in publication date order, including ISBN numbers, the total number of pages in each book, and every known edition of every title.

      Never having done a bibliography list for a single author before, I previously searched for such lists on the Web and always found them. But when I bought my first Brian Rust book, The American Record Label Book, 1st ed., I searched and could not find one with all the book details I wanted. Wikipedia has a short list with title and publication date only. At "jazzdiscography.com", Brian: The Discography Compilation Application has titles only. The best list, which may be the most complete one, is at "faqs.com", The Brian Rust Discographies with title and publication date only. However, none of these pages include ISBN numbers with convenient Amazon links where each book might be purchased, the total number of pages in each book, and no separate entry for every edition of every title. To include all these details is the purpose of this page. Only those titles with more than just title and publication date will be listed here.
