Hardcover. 4 volumes total, the 3 volumes are complete, small quarto (9.75 inches tall; 25 cm), the first of the three volumes near fine and bright in red cloth gilt, just a touch of soil to cloth, the second volume very good in blue cloth gilt, old purple stamps from a Bombay music store, ownership signature from 1875, light wear to binding, inner hinges showing light restoration, some ink annotations to table of contents pages, bookplate from the Foster Hall collection (acquired from University of Pittsburgh libraries in a sale of duplicates); third volume good in blue pebbled cloth gilt, recent yellow endpapers, text somewhat tanned and foxed and clearly well used. The Christmas Annual is as tall but narrow, in blue cloth gilt, very good, light wear to binding, contents very good and sharp, with satirical illustrations throughout. The three volumes contain a total of 145 songs, the Christmas Annual is 40 pp. Rarely found complete on the market in these original editions that were issued in the late 1860s (a complete edition of all 145 songs was published in the 1890s).
