We are very pleased to be able to offer this very rare book of song, poetry and art dating to the 1890s titled "Songs That Never Die." In addition to songs and music you will find photos of performers of the Victorian era with biographies including actresses Lillian Russell, Adelina Patti, Della Fox, etc. There is also poetry and beautifully rendered artwork in this beautiful antique book. Music is divided into eleven sections which include Songs of the Sea, Historic and Patriotic Songs, Songs of the Great Civil War, Scotch and Irish Songs, Songs of Home and Country, National Songs, Songs of Retrospect and Exile, Old Love Songs, Songs of Sentiment, Songs of the Church and Instrumental Music.

Front and back cover and spine are covered in blue cloth with embossed decoration on front with silver, gold and black decoration. The book contains 615 pp. and measures 8" wide and 10 1/2" long; spine measurement is 2".

Condition is good with expected edge wear to cover and pages for a book that is well over 100 years old! The side binding is coming loose (see pic 3), but could easily be repaired if desired. This is a very rare volume and a wonderful reference for period reenactors or anyone interested in period music, as well as mixed media artists, musicians of all kinds, and antique book collectors.
