Blue paper over boards with leather spine strip. Much edge, corner and surface wear though the covers are more complete than most music books of this sort. Front endpapers before title page and all rear endpapers are missing. Blank endpapers were often used for stationery. The hinges have some tearing but the binding is firm and secure. Former owner's name on front and rear pastedowns, actually her name is doodled several times in the rear, showing that the "scholars" in 1856 were pretty much like the "scholars" throughout history. Pratt and Johnson were music teachers in the Boston area. Pratt died young, not long after this book was published. Johnson was noted for "Floral Concerts" whatever those were. This book, they say was aimed at students not teachers. The first edition seems to have been in 1852. ; Musical Notation; Oblong 32mo 4" - 5" tall; 224 pages
