Musical Ephemera

Schubertiade Music deals in musical autographs, antiquarian music, music books, prints, photographs & paintings of musical interest, and rare musical ephemera. The collection covers a range from Dadaist concert posters designed by Tristan Tzara, to autographed score sheets by composers throughout the ages from Beethoven to Bing Crosby, to signed photographs of the likes of Fred Astaire and Josephine Baker.

Unfortunately the images provided are not of the greatest quality and their previews on the site are on the small side. (Note: the images are actually much larger, so make sure you right click on what you see in the pop up widow and "view" the actual image). This said, it is a great specialty collection which is well worth checking out.

The images below are the cover of the score sheet of Beethoven's Waldstein Sonata from 1806 (top); a primer of braille music by Edward Jenkins from 1956 (middle); and the cover page of a 3 page stapled typed plan to "Lose Weight The 'Satchmo' Way" by Lucille Armstrong, compiled for Louis Armstrong, from 1970-71 (bottom).
