Glenn Miller's Dance Folio. Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue. 15

By Miller, Glenn, compiler

New York: Mutual Music Society, Inc, 1943. Sheet_music. 47p., plus [2]p. publisher's ads, profuse musical notation with lyrics, printed on semi-alkaline jpaperstock (slightly toned), staplebound in 12x9 inch pictorial wraps. The spinefold is quite abraded with an inch-long split at the heel; general edgewear with a couple short closed tears, crimping and remnants of a long-gone sticker, plus a seller's numeral written in ink.. Textblock within is clean, sound and unmarked, a good (good-only) copy. Starts with "String of Pearls" (with a copyright of 1942) and includes "It 's Great To Be an American" ('41). Internal evidence shows this indeed to be a product of 1943: there are no later copyright dates, and a laudatory prefatory page mentions only his early struggles and his current immense popularity. FYI, his younger brother Herb was orchestra leader at Pacific Grove High School and we PG-ians noticed he didn't like to talk about Glenn, dead or alive.
