Cover for a Children’s Piano Album
Couverture pour “Album des Enfants”
Color lithograph printed on smooth wove paper.
Reference: Armond Fields 120.
Trial proof of a cover for song sheet music by Cécile Cheminade. It was quite unusual at circa 1900 to find published music by female composers.
With a vertical fold to mock up the shape of the finished cover. This one, however, has never been used as a cover and is in unusually fine condition for such an ephemera.
Published by Enoch & Co, Paris. Printed by Eugène Verneau.
Unfolded sheet overall: 11 x 17 inches.
Size given below is for the front cover, and main image.
Hinge residue in one corner. Small corner loss on back cover. Both minor and unobtrusive conditions.
