Yankee Doodle-Doo : A Collection of Songs of the Early American Stage, Vernon, Grenville (Editor)

First Edition: First Printing Hard Cover Very Good with No Dust Jacket as issued: 8 x 10.5 in.: 165 pages

Otherwise, boards and pages are clean, unmarked, bright, tightly bound and sharp cornered. Scarce, Out Of Print, Book. "It has been said that the soul of a nation is revealed in the songs of its people. Here then is a corner, and a forgotten one, of the American soul prior to the Civil War. Anyone perusing this volume even at hap-hazard, will recognize that during this period America obtained several souls; the songs of pre-Revolutionary times having nothing in common with those of the thirties, forties, and fifties, while those of the period between these are different still. As far as the present editor has been able to determine this is the first time that the field of American song up to 1860, comprising the field of opera, comic opera, and songs incidental to spoken plays, has been treated in any form whatever."
