    Autograph letter signed ("Edw: Taylor") to "Mr. Jno. Bray, St. George's Bridge, Norwich" by TAYLOR, Edward 1784-1863

    An English bass and writer on music, Taylor "sang at the Octagon Chapel and the Glee and Catch Club, was principal bass at the Hall Concerts, and played a key role in the founding and organization of the Norwich Triennial Festival in 1824; he was also skilled as a wind player and choir trainer... Still associated with opposition politics, by 1829 he had become music critic for the weekly Spectator. Its didactic, reform-minded tone suited him well, and he wrote there regularly for 14 years, notably on provincial festivals, the relative merits of Spohr (his friend) and Mendelssohn (whom he thought overrated), and on the importance of earlier music and of amateur music-making... Not the least of his achievements was the amassing of an important private collection, rich in church music, rare madrigals and motets, French, Italian and English (it was sold in 1863)." Leanne Langley in Grove Music Online. Smart (1776-1867) was a noted conductor, organist and composer, central to 19th century English musical life.. 1-1/4 pp. Quarto. Dated June 7, 1834. With integral autograph address panel. Regarding an engagement in Westminster Abbey, saying that he has told Sir George Smart that he "cannot have a player more competent to Oratorio business" but concluding that he can do no more, "except as one of the Principal Singers," because "I don't choose to lay myself under any obligations to the Lords who pretend to manage the Festival." Somewhat worn and soiled; creased at folds with small holes to address panel not affecting text; remnants of red sealing wax; small seal tears.

    Beautiful small folio book covering the International Panama-Pacific Exposition aka World's Fair which took place in San Francisco in the early 20th Century. A must-have for San Francisco history buffs! San Francisco's Jewel City: The Panama-Pacific International Exposition of 1915 by Laura A. Ackley Hardcover First Edition - Second Printing Heyday and California Historical Society 2015. Beautiful book with numerous photographs and illustrations, some of them originally black and white photos colored. SIGNED and Dated 9/28/2015 on the Title Page with Inscription "Enjoy the Fair!". Fine as NEW without Dust Jacket as issued. 382 Pages. The Panama–Pacific International Exposition ( PPIE ) was a world's fair held in San Francisco, in the United States, between February 20 and December 4 in 1915. Its ostensible purpose was to celebrate the completion of the Panama Canal, but it was widely seen in the city as an opportunity to showcase its recovery from the 1906 earthquake. The fair was constructed on a 635 acre (2.6 km2) site in San Francisco, along the northern shore, between the Presidio and Fort Mason, now known as the Marina District. Among the exhibits at the Exposition was the C. P. Huntington , the first steam locomotive purchased by Southern Pacific Railroad; the locomotive is now on static display at the California State Railroad Museum in Sacramento. A telephone line was also established to New York City so people across the continent could hear the Pacific Ocean. The Liberty Bell traveled by train on a nationwide tour from Pennsylvania to attend the exposition. After that trip, the Liberty Bell returned to Philadelphia, and has not made any further journeys since.[1] The 1915 American Grand Prize and Vanderbilt Cup auto races were held February 27 and March 6 on a 3.84-mile (6.18 km) circuit set up around the Exposition grounds.[2] The Smithsonian Institution also had an exhibition at the Exposition.
