Wonderful Vintage Volume of Manuscript Handwritten Music Scores Including Many Patriotic Tunes
c. 1820-50s, Volume of Handscored American Manuscript Music, 94 pages, including many Contemporary Patriotic Tunes, Choice Very Fine.
Exceptional, unique vintage Handscored Volume of American Manuscript Music, oblong octavo, measuring about 9" x 5.75", 94 pages, including many contemporary highly patriotic tunes. The book's hardcover is worn, coming slightly disbound; minor wear to contents, one leaf torn out (possibly on purpose); signature of original owner or composer, "Edmund A. Hart" on front pastedown label. This is an outstanding compendium of more than 100 melodies, a few of them arranged for two clarinets.

Historical and Patriotic highlights include: "The Star Spangled Banner" on the first page (for the flute), "Washington's Grand March" (page 10), "Hail Columbia" (pages 3 and 24), "Yankee Doodle" (pages 3 and 25) and "La Fayette's Welcome to the United States" (page 43). Popular songs include "Auld Lang Syne" (page 22), "Home Sweet Home" (page 39) and Stephen Foster's "Old Dog Trey," here credited to Christy's Minstrels (page 50). The latter first appeared in 1853.
