The standard instrumentation is piano, drums, bass, guitar, alto sax 1 & 3, tenor sax 2 & 4, 3 trumpets, 2 trombones, 3 violins, and vocal trio.

The complete arrangements are all copyright 1940. The large number of partially complete tunes are dated 1925 to 1941; most are 1939, with the rest in the mid-late 1930s.
The whole collection occupies two small boxes.
The complete books are in clean, mostly good to very good shape, although the paper is a little fragile in some cases. A few are solid and look like almost new. A few are missing bass or violin parts.
The partially complete books are in fair to good condition. There is only one consequential tear that compromises legibility. I would advise photocopying everything and putting the originals away for safekeeping.
