Lilly of the Valley, Arranged By Edwin P. Christy
1 Arranged By Edwin P. Christy Lilly of the Valley
New York Jaques and Brother 1847 Sheet Music Very Good Folio - over 12" - 15" tall 
Complete with 5 numbered pages. Wonderful b/w cover illustration with five vignettes; one shows Edwin Christy and the others show the minstrels performing as both men and women in blackface. Four blackface cherubs decorate the cover as well. Christy's Minstrels invented the standard minstrel line with the interlocutor in the middle and Mr. Tambo and Mr. Bones on the ends and were the most popular minstrel group of their day. "The Christy Minstrels . . . give the most decidedly original exhibition that we have seen, and accomplish what is the legitimate object of their costumes and colored faces, namely, the personation of the witty negro. In consideration of these things, we must express our preference for the Christy Minstrels. . . . We listen and laugh, and have a desire to go again, and again. And in this feeling, we think the great majority of the people are with us." The Spirit of the Times, 16 October 1847. Clean pages. Light soiling to front cover. Once bound so slightly trimmed.

15 Clifton, Harry Polly Perkins of Pemberton Green - Sheet Music
Boston Henry Tolman & Co. 1860 First Edition Sheet Music Very Good Folio - over 12" - 15" tall 
Circa 1860. From Buckleys Comic Songs as sung by R. Bisop Buckley [and] Buckleys Serenaders. 5 pages including the front cover. Cover includes five b/w vignettes showing members of the Serenaders. One of the vignettes shows R. Biship Buckley, and the other four show Serenaders performing in blackface. Untrimmed with some edge wear and light soiling. Short (1") closed tear on right edge. Buckleys Serenaders began performing in the 1840s and were one of the two most popular American singing companies throughout the 1850s and 1860s. When not on tour, the group performed at the opera house they owned on Broadway in New York City. After viewing one of their performances, Charles Dickens wrote, "Wilkie and I . . . went to the Buckley's last night. They do the most preposterous things, in the way of Violin Solos, Deeply Sentimental Songs, and Lucrezia Borgia music, sung by a majestic female in black velvet and jewels with a blackened face! All that part of it, is intolerably bad. But the real Nigger things are very good; and there is one man-the tambourine-who attempts to do things with chairs, in remembrance of an acrobat he has seen, which is the most genuinely ludicrous thing of its kind, I ever beheld. Nor have I ever seen so good a presentation as his, of the real Negro."

New York Dick & Fitzgerald 1865 Hard Cover w Pictorial Label Very Good 16mo - over 5" - 6" tall 
Complete; 96 numbered pages with advertising sections in front and rear. Cover illustration shows an angel playing a banjo. The book bears an 1865 copyright date, and it appears to be a major revision of "Frank B. Converse's New and Complete Method for the Banjo with or without a Master," which was published in 1865, although this book is in an entirely different format and only about half of the tunes are the same. The list of advertisements on the rear cover includes "The Banjo, and How to Play It," which was published in 1872 and appears to be a companion to this title. Sound binding and hinges. Clean pages with some very slight discoloration along the fore-edge margin of two leaves. Front illustration is in nice shape with only a little edge wear and light soiling. Back cover has a large ink stain. The spine is present, however the gilt lettering has faded. The book begins with a brief summary of music theory and instructions for holding and tuning a banjo. Songs, in regular musical notation, are shown in blocks of two measures followed by detailed playing instructions. Songs include Arkansas Traveler, Coon Hunt Walk Around, Cane Break Reel, O Susanna, O'Flarharty's Wake, Yankee Doodle, and more.
