Compiled by Allen D. Carden. Cincinnati: Morgan, Lodge, and Fisher, 1825. 1st edition. Patterned paper with a leather spine. Illustrated with sheet music. 198 pp. Octavo. Poor.
An uncommon rarity to be found on the market, with only 3 other located copies of this 1825 edition currently in institutions around the country. Each page notated with music for 3-4 voices; this edition lacks the index, but the remainder is present. Severely worn volume; text block loose, with significant rubbing to the boards and shelfback; corners eroded, with other signs of handling wear. Crinkling and tears to the text block, and chipping to the edges.
