Stitched, tan wraps with comic image of Revolutionary War soldier. Only very light wear, along with some age-toning on wraps. Very attractive copy, about near fine. This collection of songs is undated but probably comes from the 1840's or 1850's. The songs are popular numbers from the early 19th century and are sometimes attributed to singers of the day, including The Ethiopean Serenaders (a blackface minstrel group), Mr. Quayle, Thomas H. Hadaway (who received "rapturous applause), Henry Phillips (who received "universal applause"), Mr Russel, and others. Two songs treat on African-American topics and are written in dialect. Interesting collection of songs, now mostly forgotten. ; B&W Drawing, Cover Art; 32mo 4" - 5" tall; 34 pages
