New York, 1894. Large broadsheet (approx. 91 x 59.5 cm.) printed on newsprint; 18 small steel-cut illustrations on verso; uniformly toned with chips and tears, some loss affecting text with very slight loss of meaning; a good example of this very fragile, large ephemeral piece. Advertisement featuring "Howard Power's Latest Success," Gussie Davis's song The fatal wedding (copyright 1893), with words by W. H. Windom. Printed on recto are the lyrics of 18 songs, including The fatal wedding, and advertisement for 11 songbooks from the Songster series; 18 more songbooks advertised on verso, along with 3 Irish songbooks, and 19 general publications, (a few adorned with rather racist illustrations). Titles include "Wehman's Practical Poultry Book" ("fills a long felt want for a Complete and Standard Guide for the breeding and management of Poultry..."); "Wehman's Minstrel Sketches, Conundrums, and Jokes"; "Wehman's Book on the Art and Science of Boxing"; and "Wehman's Bartenders Guide." Also includes two German titles advertised in German black-letter. Broadsheet not in OCLC as of July, 2014. (Inventory #: 45871)
