An important collection of early American sheet music bound in one volume, consisting of two preliminary leaves of hand-written Index, 113 leaves [i.e. 226 pages] of printed content, and three terminal blank leaves. Please scroll down for a complete list. The volume, measuring 13.75 x 10.25 inches, is in half-leather over marbled boards, with four raised bands to spine. Spine titles and decoration in gilt: Music / Vol. 1. Leather and boards scuffed; foxing, stains, age-toning, and occasional pencil markings to interior. In a few cases there is a marginal chip, and in two instances the music appears to be lacking a page or more, noted specifically below. One leaf has been largely torn out and lost, leaving a remnant of its title. A few leaves have short marginal closed tears: no loss of paper and not intruding to text. The volume remains securely bound; there are no loose leaves. Please feel free to inquire further. Dates are noted when printed on title page. In a few other cases the printer has noted: copy right secured. In order of collation: The Battle of Prague: A Favorite Sonata for the Piano-forte composed by F. Cotzwara. New York: J.A. & W. Geib.
