8th edition in two formats

Hi folks !

19 years after I started  to sell the first edition of my directory, the 8th one is available in both formats, i.e. on paper and / or on pdf.

On 254 A4 pages, BIBLIOROCK contains 5,952 bibliographical notes divided in two sections :

- 2,742 general books (historical and thematic) w/ an alphabetical title index

- 3,210 books concerning 524 artists (& bands) w/ a list of their names and "musical status"

Encyclopedias, dictionaries, biographies, essays, discographies, general or specific histories (incl. festivals), novels, cartoons, pix books, memoirs, lyrics books are some of the documents you will find. Among them are two exclusive types :

1.   800 academic works (106 thesis and 694 dissertations) attended / defended during last 45 years in the 4 main French-speaking countries. Only 10 % are currently availble online. 

2.   475 special issues of magazines fully devoted to either one artist (or band) or to a specific subject

19 years after its first edition, BIBLIOROCK is still the one and only directory of every French-speaking book published since 1962, dealing w/ the HISTORY of ROCK MUSIC, its artists and its culture.

Several French university libraries have ordered at least one edition, the latest one being Strasbourg (BNU) in 2015. The French national library (BNF) has just renewed for my 8th edition.  In Europe, three Gerrnan (Freiburg, Berlin, Munich) and two Austrian (Salzburg, Innsbruck) unversity librairies have ordered at least one edition.

For libraries and booksellers, the paper edition is priced at € 75.00. P&P is € 4.00 inside EU  and 5.00 for the rest of the world (cultural documents). A digital version (pdf) is available at the same price. 

A separate update will come along with each order. As of July 25; it contains 283 new titles, out of which 115 date 2016 while 168 date 2015 or earlier.

Please read the documents below, all of them taken from 8th edition.  If u can read French, my main blog will provide some extra info, especially about dissertations ans thesis works, see  http://bibliorock.canalblog.com      Any question is welcome.

Some 20 general bibliographies about rock music have already been published. Most of them are English-speaking and the latest one date 1997. 20 years after its first edition, BIBLIOROCK is still the one and only directory of every French-speaking book published since 1962,
