A handsome period binding from the American branch of the venerable music publishers. While there are plate marks for the music (v.a. 1868), OCLC suggests a far more reasonable publication date of 1897, which is highly consistent with the style of the binding and printing. OCLC locates copies at Cleveland Public and Martin Luther College. OCLC: 22334613.
