The Victorian Sheet Music Covers
Collection consists of approximately 840 sheet music covers produced in the United
Kingdom during the Victorian era, which depict various aspects of British life and
culture at the time, and demonstrate the development of printing techniques including
color lithography and embossing. While the majority of the items in the collection are
only covers, a few pieces are still attached to their scores. Also included in the
collection is a small number of news clippings with articles related to Victorian music
and music hall performers.
