    (MUSICAL PERIODICAL). (COLORED ILLUSTRATIONS). BEADLE'S HALF-DIME SINGER'S LIBRARY. Comic and Sentimental Songs of All Nations and Ages. No. 1 - 43 [all]. New York: Beadle & Adams, [1878-79]. 1st ed. Large 4to. Contemp. calf backed boards, covers loose, bindings worn. $5,000.00


    Cf. Johannsen, The House of Beadle and Adams, I, 391-95, plus full page illustration between pp. 388-89. "...appeared, with occasionally a break, in weekly numbers between the 18th of May, 1878, and the 29th of March, 1879, ending with No. 43. The booklets are thin quartos, of 16 pages each, and measure 11-3/4 by 8-1/4 inches. There are no outside wrappers, but early editions...have a colored illustration on the first page....the coloring was apparently done by colir stencil....The only bound volume that I have seen contained the whole 43 numbers and was without an Index."

    Our set is bound in two volumes. Some foxing, but very sound.
