The Organ and its position in Musical Art by H. Heathcote Statham Chapman & Hall, 1909, 1st ed, illus b&w

£12.00

Product description

Publisher: Chapman and Hall, London, 1909, 1st edition. Hardback, 245 pages. Illus with photographic frontispiece and b&w drawings and musical examples. No dustjacket. The attractive cover, in green cloth boards with gilt titling and decoration to front and spine, is in generally sound and decent condition commensurate with age with some shelfwear to edges, fading to spine and one or two light marks here and there. Lovely musical stave decoration to front. Internally the book is in generally sound, clean and firm condition for its age with some foxing to endpapers (especially free endpaper) and to first few and last few pages (incl frontispiece tissue guard) and to page block edges. Pages are lightly tanned and are rough cut as was common practice at that date. No inscriptions, tears or creases and binding is firm and secure. Front free endpaper has been removed. Overall, a lovely and fascinating book enhanced by many musical examples plus illustration of organ pipes, a layout plan of one octave of pipes of a ten-stop organ and and a specification for organ of 50 stops with 3 manuals and pedal. A most attractive and useful volume for organists or for anyone interested in the performance of organ music.
