[Banjo]. Converse, Frank B. Frank B. Converse's Banjo Instructor, Without A Master. New York: Dick & Fitzgerald, [1865 or after]. Octavo. Original yellow printed boards, cloth spine gilt, corners rubbed, still a fine copy.
A lovely copy of a scarce book. Yellow pictorial covers portray a nude angel picking the banjo. Although the copywright page shows the year 1865, this copy is more probably from the 1880's judging from the ads in the back of the book. Contains intricate directions, including music manuscript, for songs. Certainly a must-have for the serious banjo collector. (#kfk280) $650.00
