by Dichter, Harry and Bernice Larrabee, eds

Condition: Good


Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Harry Dichter, 1953. Second Series. Softcover. Good. A nice-looking, structurally sound copy of the Second Series, published by the then King of sheet music-selling and bibliographer of music Americana, Harry Dichter, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1953. This is a catalog of 1,451 items fit for dealers and collectors, bound in stiff blue printed wrappers, illustrated with a sepia-tone likeness of Harry Dichter on front cover. 49 pp., including the inside of the rear flap, which advertises the sale of a humongous sheet music collection, probably that of Paul Mellon from Nashville, Tennessee. Interestingly, both covers are included in pagination, and the first leaf is folded, advertising 12 different items of early Americana, including "T. Rice" as the original Jim Crow. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
