Songs by Oley Speaks

by Speaks, Oley

Condition: Good

Cincinnati, Ohio: The John Church Company . Softcover. Good. Intriguing collection of sheet music composed by Ohioan Oley Speaks. "Originally employed as a railway clerk in the Columbus, Ohio station, Speaks became a successful singer,...[and a not-so-successful composer, until] his first million-selling song was 'On the Road to Mandalay'" (IMDB). Numerous titles included, such as "Where the Heart Is," "In May Time," and his break-out hit, "On the Road to Mandalay" with lyrics by Rudyard Kipling. Unusual limp suede cover over boards shows scuffing, loose edges. Gilt lettering to front including the initials "M.G.D." on lower left. Apparently rebound, with taped gutters at front. Stitched signatures are separated in spots, but all intact with light toning to text. Decorated endpapers. Unpaginated. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
