Outside of the bigger Tsumura book, "1001 Banjos", this book (known as "the Red Book") is the most comprehensive banjo reference book available. Both "1001 Banjos" and "the Red Book" are very rare and out of print. The 1001 Banjo book retails for over $1000, so "the Red Book" is in high demand for its much lower price point.
I am in a position where I am selling-off some of my collection. Here are some details on this book:
