World War I Sheet Music: 9,670 Patriotic Songs Published in the United States, 1914-1920, with More Than 600 Covers Illustrated [Parker]


This comprehensive listing catalogs the patriotic sheet music of World War I. The introductory text covers the sheet music publishing business of the time and describes how the music messages often paralleled Woodrow Wilson's policies. Nearly 10,000 songs are included with complete bibliographical data: title, authors of the lyrics and music when available, value based on auction prices and collector knowledge, publisher, folio size and cover description. Each entry in the catalog is assigned a letter and number for easy identification in the indexes. The letter is the first letter of the title of the song and the number is its place in that alphabetical list. Titles are arranged alphabetically. Included are 613 photos of outstanding sheet music covers.
