Burgundy cover with blind stamped corner accents, fancy spine & cover title & green floret endpapers. Cover title may have been gilt at one time, if so it's faded off. Nice cover for age with some general light soiling (spotting in places) and a cloth fray at the bottom edge of the spine.
About 11-3/4 x 9 with 386 pages (or songs), and a rear section PRACTICAL METHOD for the PIANOFORTE BY LOUIS KOHLER OP. 249., MEMBERS CATALOGUE, books ads OUR STRING OF POPULAR HITS & INDEX. Pictorial illustrations interspersed plus frontis. Secure binding with clean pages, couple pencil check notations, and some mild page surface/corner creases. Over all rather nice considering age. Undated circa 1875. Scarce Americana music book!
