About this Item

THE DANCING LESSON Words by Ed Teschemacher Music by Herbert Oliver. J H Larway, London 1913 10pp Sheet Music. This copy is in exceptionally fine condition with no markings or annotations. Herbert Oliver, active from before the Great War, until after World War II, was one of the more prolific writers of popular songs around at that period. Among his popular titles were Down Vauxhall Way, London Pride, Spreading the News, The Sentinel, Gretna Green, Red Rose of England, Love Divine, Round the Galley Fire, Land of the Harlequin, The Call and The Ball at the Great St James'. Some of them were gathered into collections - London Echoes, Lyrics of London, The Passing Show, Songs of Old London, The Cries of Old London, Songs of the Orient, Songs of the Devon Moors, Songs of the Northern Hills and Songs of a Vivandiere and the 'operette cycle' The Belle of the Ball - or, transcribed by other hands, became popular orchestral numbers. An example is Lady Betty's Gavotte, arranged by Sydney Baynes from Down Vauxhall Way. This piece of music came from a substantial library amassed by Maud Beerbohm Tree and later added to by her daughters Viola (1884-1938 and Felicity (1894-1978) Helen Maud Holt (5 October 1863 7 August 1937), professionally known as Mrs Beerbohm Tree and later Lady Tree, was an English actress. She was the wife of the actor Herbert Beerbohm Tree and the mother of Viola Tree, Felicity Tree and Iris Tree. After early stage appearances beginning in 1883, Mrs Tree married and established a theatrical partnership with her husband, in which they appeared in revivals of classic plays and productions of new plays, first at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket and then at Her Majesty's Theatre. Her performances in serious roles were well received, but she was most celebrated for her work in comedy, from Shakespeare to new works by Wilde and others. After her husband's death in 1917, Lady Tree continued to act steadily for almost two decades more until towards the end of her life, in plays and some films, making her last stage appearance in 1935. This is just one of a great many pieces of music and scores that I am selling from this collection on this site. Ref SM2 Size: 10pp. Bookseller Inventory # 008091
