Original brown blindstamped cloth on boards, recto and verso. First edition (Copyright 1875). Apart from an elegant handwritten gift note on first free endpaper and name and address of previous owner (same family name) on rear free endpaper, this book has no writing or marks. Hinges are secure and there is only the tiniest evidence of foxing, which is confined to a few of the ads at the top of every page. There is one bite-size piece missing from the outer margin of p. 15-16. 35 instrumental pieces and 25 vocal pieces are included with full scores. There are ads from about 70 companies for pianos, organs, music boxes, corsets, mattresses, sewing machines, exercise machines, perfume, newspapers, flowers and seeds, combs, tooth brushes, and sheet music. Descriptions of charades are limited to the last page. Covers show edge wear. 168 pp.
