Table of contents What's This?
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.
