HOME MUSICAL LIBRARY.
Each book of this splendid collection is separate and independent of all others, is generally bought by itself, and ased by itself. Still, as the volumes are all uniform in binding, size and style, price and general plan, it is quite proper that they should be brought under one general designation. Indeed, what more perfect musical library can be imagined ! Each book contains the best music of the kind indicated by the title, and in some cases nearly all of it. For instance, “Operatic Pearls" contains nearly all the pieces from standard operas ; at least nearly all that are sung in concerts. " Gems of Strauss ” contains nearly all the favorite compositions of the brilliant composer; and so of other books. Price of each book in boards,
$2.50. Price of each book in cloth,
3.00. Price of each book in fine gilt,
4.00. The whole library, (of 17 books,) will cost from $40 to $64, the latter being the aggregate price of the fine gilt edition, which would be just the thing to present to a musical couple who are beginning housekeeping. The plainer bound books are equally good as to their contents, and are invaluable for teachers and pupils, being well classified, and filled with the most entertaining and useful music, both vocal and instrumental.
