From Library Journal
Crew (Presidential Sheet Music) presents an enthusiastic collector's inventory, documenting American music publishing, the suffragist movement, and 130 years of American music history. Each chronologically arranged entry includes a black-and-white reproduction of the cover of the music (or book of songs), plus lyricist, composer, publisher, copyright date, and other data, including library or other collection location. For all songs, lyrics are given except when the words are in a non-Latin script or the piece was included as a pictorial reference to women's suffrage. "Instrumental" pieces are presumably for piano. A noted collector of political memorabilia, Crew does not claim that the book is comprehensive, but he lists music found in many large libraries (including the Library of Congress) and several private collections(including his own). Indexes are of publishers, titles, composers, and subjects, but there is no index of lyricists. Recommended for libraries serving students of American history and American music.
