||John Tiplady Carrodus (1836-1895)
||Sixpenny Musical Library, No.53. Book 3|
London: E. Pitman, n.d.
||From the uploader's family library. Loose pages stitched together by the uploader's mother on her faithful hand revolved Jones' sewing machine, so it has proved more convenient to use an A3 scanner. The first inside cover displays an advertisement for the fortunate securement by Mr.Frederick Pitman of "two new MSS. by the author of the celebrated Hypatia Waltz" and reproduces some of the enthusiastic Press opinions of "May Ostlere's Great and Genuine Success". As these comments are dated in months only, prior to that year's looming Christmas music making festivities, it is unfortunately not possible to date the publication precisely. However one of the London periodicals cited is Truth, founded in January 1887, so the earliest possible date for the collection would be 1888.
