FOSTER, Stephan and others. The Love and Sentimental Songster: A Choice Collection of Popular Love and Sentimental Songs.
(New York, NY): Dick & Fitzgerald, 1862. First edition. 16mo. 72 pages. Sweet little songbook, that were published in abundance from the eighteenth century through the end of the nineteenth century, the version here contains the lyrics to 85 love songs including: The Star-spangled Banner, Come into the Garden, Maud, The Gambler’s Wife, and Will You Love Me Then, As Now? to name but a few. The volume contains only the lyrics with no musical notation. Very small chip at the base of the spine, otherwise a nice fresh copy in printed wrappers. Uncommon, particularly in this condition.
