Autograph Musical Quotation Signed.

Little is known about this popular 19th century American composer and pianist except the names of some of his compositions, which include "Night Before Petersburgh" (1867), "The Nation's Hero Grand March" (1868), "Love Among the Roses" (1870), "The Mocking Bird" (1872), "Lutheran Hymn" (1879) and "Polka de Concert" (1882). Item #42880

AMuQS, 1p, 6" X 4", City Hotel, Providence, R.I., 10 April 1872. Very good. Faint age toning at edges, with couple of miniscule archivally-closed (on verso) edge tears. Hoffman handsomely pens in brown ink three measures of music, identifying them above as "'Polka' / The Belles of Providence" and boldly signing below, adding the date and place. Quite attractive.

Price: $100.00
