Three books by Opal Wheeler Great Musicians series

£24.00

Product description

Opal Wheeler and Sybil Deucher tapped a very valuable seam when they wrote a series of short, clear biographies of great musicians, for the most part dwelling on their childhood. They were also fortunate to have the assistance of Mary Greewalt as illustrator. The books went to several printings and editions. Here we offer three of the books in a slip case.
1. Sebastian Bach The Boy from Thuringia. 8th printing of 1938 pp 126
2. Joseph Haydn The Merry little Peasant 8th Printing of 1938 pp 118
3, Mozart The wonder Boy. 10th Printing of 1938 pp 91
Dutton hardbacks with intact DJs. Some of the DJs are a little worn around the edges but the underlying boards are in good condition, the binding is unformly good and there are no marks. The slip case is somewhat worn also with labels showing some erosion of their margins.
A nice trio of books in very good condition and with striking illustations
Because of their weight overseas postage may incur additional costs
