A propos de cet article

Royal Octavo. Lacking title page and perhaps other front matter; 2 volumes bound together, lacking much of the second volume (last page present is 178 followed by a contemporary manuscript index); bound incomplete in 19th century suede with a red morocco title label and a black morocco previous owner label on the spine; the binding is rather worn with modern repair to the spine; previous owner bookplate on the verso of the front free endpaper, Mary Young, the name on the spine label; also belonged to Noah K. Davis, 19th century philosopher at University of Virginia. This is a remarkably scarce title. According to the DAB, "Whitaker, composer, and a member of the music publishing firm of Button, Whitaker, & Co., St. Paul's Churchyard, was born in 1776. He was a teacher of music, and organist to St. Clement's, Eastcheap. In 1818 Whitaker collected and published 'The Seraph,' two volumes of sacred music, for four voices, of which many pieces are original. He was better known as a writer of occasional songs introduced in musical plays at the principal theatres between 1807 and 1825. Among those which attained great popularity were: 'Fly away, dove,' sung by Miss Cawse on her début in the 'Hebrew Family;' 'O say not woman's heart is bought,' 'Go, Rover, go,' 'Remember me,' 'The Little Farmer's Daughter,' 'My Poor Dog Tray,' 'The Lily that blooms,' 'Paddy Carey's Fortune,' and 'Hot Codlins.'"
