This 1931, fourteen-page book, "The Carollers", was published by the renowned Boosey & Hawkes publishing house, and features twelve Christmas Carols, all transcripted for Solo Piano by Donald Gray. It features a lovey illustration of some Carollers, many of them children, singing and playing instuments, outside a porch, with the smiling female property-owner watching. The name of the illustrator is not stated.
Marks : There is the name of a previous owner of this book, neatly written on the top-right of the cover (Photo One). Apart from this, there is no other writing in the whole of the fourteen pages.
Foxing : The book has withstood the ravages of time very well, with only the very slightest trace of foxing, on the central-vertical edge of page-6, no more than a single-mm thick, and just over two inches long (see Photo Two, if you can see it, but it is extremely hard to see).
Dog-Earring : Only almost-imperceptible traces, on top-right, & bottom-right, of cover, and obviously running through the book.
Spinal-Wear : Again, only very slightest trace, inevitable given the book's age.
All-in-all, a book that will give great enjoyment, to any group of Christmas Carollers who have a keyboard or piano, on hand.
