About this Item

First Edition. 2 pp. Fo. Repaired transverse tear across pp. 1/2 not encroaching on text.Dampstain along leading edges. Hinge separated. Else, Good Fuld, World Famous Music, p.349. A pre-fire Chicago musical imprint by Root & Cady. The words and music are by the illustrious composer of "Marching through Georgia" and other war songs and of temperance songs, Henry C. Work, possibly in celebration of full Black emancipation and the end of the Civil War. According to Fuld, "Marching through Georgia" was the most hated song in the South. Work (1832Ð84) was trained as a printer. Born in Connecticut, he moved to Illinois at age 3, as his father, an ardent abolitionist, was working for the Underground Railway. Henry C. Work, still a printer and later an inventor of toys and machines, offered a song to George Root, who encouraged him to write music full-time and published many of his songs. On rear cover is a gloriously illustrated publisher's ad. Not in American Imprints Inventory No. 4, Checklist of Chicago Ante-Fire Imprints, 1851Ð1871. Bookseller Inventory # 10281
