New York: Wm. A. Pond & Co. 1865. 3-7, [1] p.: music for piano; 34 cm. Color front cover illustration of band instruments arrayed on ground with a sword in front of a military encampment, with a U.S. flag in the background. This composition by F.B. Helmsmüller portrays three military bands parading up Broadway in New York City: Graffulla's 7th Regiment Band [Claudio S. Grafulla], Dodworth's 71st Regiment Band [Allen Dodworth], and Helmsmüller's 22nd Regiment Band. Lower edge trimmed, with loss of most of the publication information. Originally published by New York City music publisher Firth, Pond & Co. in 1862 or 1863 and re-issued by its successor Wm. A. Pond & Co. in the mid-1860s. This is more likely the printing by Wm. A. Pond & Co. issued in 1864 or 1865. In Good Condition: disbound; loss of some publication information, as described above; two old repairs of last leaf and one modern archival repairs of lower edge of first leaf; lower corner of third leaf lacking without loss of music; 7-cm. tear from fore-edge of last leaf, without loss of music; old damp stain on first leaf; light soiling and foxing. A very scarce early printing of this popular Civil War-related piece celebrating military bands. Good. Item #000917
