    Bulgin Revival Songs by Bulgin, E. J., Ed

    This book does not actually have a copyright date, but the songs do, and 1917 is the latest copyright date of any songs. Therefore the book has to have been published sometime after, but not too long. I have found accounts of Rev. Bulgin actively travelling the country with his revival in the 1920s. One would imagine he'd have had his song book with him at that time. Cover is somewhat worn, with a few creases, a small tear, and a bit grimy. The stapled binding has allowed the middle sheet to come loose. (see photo #2)

    Prentice Hall, 1965. Good +. 213 pp. This book is in good condition. The pages are clean and the binding is tight. Name in ink on inside front cover. The cover shows wear and soiling. The front cover is starting to curl. The spine is darkened. There is a stain on the inside back cover.



    Christmas Carols, New And Old by Lillenas, Haldor, Ed

    Ok, the "New" of the title is probably best lumped in with the "Old" today. Contains 60 Christmas Carols. Sorry, no "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer". Book is really in good condition for 76 years old. Cover has some wear, pages pretty clean.



    Jazz: America's Classical Music by Sales, Grover

    Trade paperback. Inscribed and signed by the author. A history of Jazz, that uniquely American style of music. Like new, nothing much more than fingerprints on the cover.



    The New American Song Book by Oberndorfer, Anne Faulkner, Marx E. Oberndorfer, Eds. and Arthur Olaf Anderson, Arrangements

    190 pages. Some wear on the cover, but not too much. Many traditional songs from America.

    McGraw-Hill. PAPERBACK. 1308259182 Item in good condition. Textbooks may not include supplemental items i.e. CDs, access codes etc... . Good.



    Songs for America by Frey, Hugo, Ed

    143 pages of songs. No hip-hop. Cover has many folds, creases, stains, tears, and the owner's name, many times. Owner's name also inside front cover and on many pages within. Otherwise, no marks, just a lot of signature practice. Want to sing like they did in the depression? This book has it.

    Recital Piano Pieces the Whole Wolrd Plays by Wier, Albert E., Ed

    Front and back cover boards are worn, but still rather good. The spine was covered with cloth and that is coming apart. The stitching of the spine is still intact and holding. Small water stain on the lower fifth of the pages, mainly on the edges. 47 piano compositions meant to be played solo, from many well-known composers. I would imagine that this can be called rare.



    The Concertgoer's Companion, Volume 1, Bach to Hayden by Hopkins, Antony

    London: Westbridge Books. Very Good/Very Good. 1984. Hard Cover. 9.5" x 6.25" Minor wear and ageing only, no inscriptions. Weysprings Books is a Member of: the IOBA and PBFA, and subscribes to the Associations' Codes of Ethics. .
