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.

9 x 6 1/4 inches
