About this Item

Large format sheet music 5 pp. Beautiful female ghost playing the violin by Pfeiffer on front cover. Photo inset features the Courtney Sisters. Minor creasing and a couple of small tears to edges. Edward Pfeiffer was born in New York City in August, 1868 to a German immigrant father Henry Pfeiffer and New York native mother Mary (York) Pfeiffer. Pfeiffer's first covers date back to 1892, and his volume of work spans over 100 publishers, indicating that his reputation as a freelance artist was likely considerable. Pfeiffer's signature varied in scope from the simple EHP to Fifer to the official sounding Pfeiffer Illustrating Co. However the majority of his works featured the unique E.H. Pfeiffer N.Y. script, which is as recognizable to collectors as the Disney signature is to children of all ages. While many of his works reflect some representation of the title of the piece they adorn, he was particularly gifted with drawing floral motifs and attractive women, exercising careful consideration for near-photo realistic shading. Pfeiffer was also an early advocate of what became the Art Deco school of art by the late 1920s. Of particular favorites listed here are the highly stylized Bantam Step and three different versions of Wild Cherries. Bookseller Inventory # 49206
