About this Item: Simon & Schuster, New York, 1954. Full Lime Cloth w Gilt Decor. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Good (Brodarted). First Printing Stated. This 654 page omnibus of the social history tied to the piano, a First Printing Stated, being an increasingly well respected and energetically applauded offering it is proudly presented with great and well deserved hubris by Hirschfeld Galleries in BOTH the publishers original binding and original dustwrapper. The UNBUMPED binding is full lime green colored cloth with gilt, and it is rock solid tight and clean as a whistle, save for the very slightest of lightening at the very top edge, not noticeable unless your attention is called to it. The UNCLIPPED jacket is nice but not quite so perfect as the binding it protects. There is some mild edge wear and chipping and very modest browning from the winds of time. But not to worry or be sad, for said imperfection is made barely noticeably, since, on the very positive side of things, the jacket is now and forevermore protected from any future ambient abuse and resulting degradation by professionally fitted and applied yet instantly removable Brodart mylar. Inside, an internationally renowned pianist presents a delightful "piano's-eye view" of Western European and American social history from the 16th through 20th centuries. With wit and erudition, Loesser traces the history of the instrument's design and manufacture and its music, from the clavichord and harpsichord to the modern spinet and concert grand. Alas, when all is said and done and the proverbial geese have come home to nest or roost, or whatever, and you're ready to decide to invest some of your hard-earned cash in this lofty offering, please consider that this book does indeed have the four absolute uppermost qualities we at Hirschfeld Galleries since 1931 have always sought, and demanded, in books: 1) excellence in content, 2) literary quality, 3) appealing design, and 4) significance of contribution. Another great altruistic offering opportunity for us and an even greater opportunity for self-actualized reception on your part. But enough of the lugubrious however allegorically wise jaw-jacking, enough said of the telluric parameters of select Hirschfeld Galleries' offerings such as this one which take on a life of their own and speak so very loudly for themselves. Read to learn and enjoy; go forth to share and enjoin. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Melodic Hardcover. Seller Inventory # 006519
