This title bound with 40 other pieces of early 19th-century juvenile / intermediate player sheet music: Tavistock Books' Inventory ID Nos. 38309 - 38350. The handwritten Contents pg lists 43 titles; however, as Cooke's "Lord Hardwicke's March" and "Lady Hardwicke's Waltz" share a title pg, as do "Paine of Almacks Quadrille" and "Prince Frederick of Prussias Waltz", we have combined those titles into one record each (ID Nos. 38334 and 38318, respectively).
Volume as a whole includes arrangements circa 1800 - 1830 of well-known pieces such as Mozart's "Masquerade Minuet" (Don Giovanni), C. E. Horn's version of "Cherry Ripe", J. B. Cramer's arrangement of "Rousseau's Dream", and "Serenaders Quadrilles" (selections from Weber's Der Freyschutz) arranged by G. A. Hodson. Illustrations include some lithographic images to sheet music title pages, & some engraved designs to title leaves.
