Owner's signature dated 1895. Printed in Bavaria. Unpaginated. Mounted colour frontispiece + b&w in-text illustrations. Page dimensions: 255 x 204mm. Papered boards with cloth spine. The most notable feature of this book is the attractive colour illustration of a feline conductor on the front board. This cat's expression is hard to interpret, possibly he is a little flustered, puzzled, or feeling the pressure. One sheet of his notes has taken flight from the music stand. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall.
