About this Item

8vo. 25 by 18 cm. 88 pp. of content, with a few blank numbered pages following. With 31 watercolored illustrations or vignettes, usually by the title to the song, but occasionally to the side. The songs were generally well-known songs; the watercolors are painted directly onto the pages. Occasionally there is musical notation, but most songs are given with only the lyrics, which are written in a very neat, attractive hand. The songs include "Nous en sommes", "L'Invalide de marseille", "Je suis gobe par maportiere", "Dans l'autre panier elles sont plus molles", "L'enfant des Remparts", "L'invalide Belge", "L'Anarchiste", "Brunes et Blondes", "Naples", "Salut aux hirondelles", "Le Gondolier", "Souviens-toi du cruel Vainqueur", "Veux-tu?" "Vive la Musique Militaire", "Le Moulin Rose", "Les Roses-The", "Offre-moi ton baiser", "Estudiantina", "Les Rameaux", "La Czarine", "Les Sapins", "La Valse des Vins", "L'Esclave noir", "Le roi des hohemiens", "La Vague", "Le Credo des 4 Saisons", "Les Bresiliennes", "Les fleurs de ma Mie", "Les Deux Temoins", "Un tour de Valse", "Le Refus", "Poivrot", "Balochard", "Explaire" and "La Chanson des Paves". Several of the entries in the back are partial, without the title or image. Some of the images are not truly original -- they are copied or adapted from published material. Rebacked with cloth. The leaves are age toned and brittle, with some edge chipping. Bookseller Inventory # 004364

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
