Product description

Monte Cristo, Jr. - Burlesque Melodrama. Pianoforte Solo - W. Meyer Lutz (c.1886)
 
 A late Victorian sheet music book of theatrical interest, being a piano solo arrangement of the music of Monte Cristo, Jr.           , one of a series of burlesque shows for which the Gaiety Theatre in London became famous; this particular show was produced there by George Edwardes in 1886, with a cast including Lottie Collins, Nellie Farren, Fred Leslie and E. J. Lonnen. This scarce book includes a four-page advertisement sheet from the original retailer (Banks' Music Warehouse, 2 Stonegate, York) glued or bound in between the inside front cover and the title page, whilst the front cover and title page bear the same retailer's stamp with names of "musical successes". Please note that this edition, being intended for purely instrumental use, does NOT include any lyrics or libretto.
 
Whilst the book shows some signs of age (see condition description below), it remains complete and fully legible, and would make a lovely addition to a collection of Victorian music or theatrical memorabilia.
