Motion Picture Piano Music: Descriptive Music to Fit the Action, Character or Scene of Moving Pictures
Selected, Arranged, composed, and Published by Gregg A. Frelinger, 1909
About 12" X 9-1/4", 24 pages. This is a unique item. It is cited in Film Music: A History by Wierzbicki as the earliest compilation of American film music. The index lists titles for the compositions such as "Apparitions", "Assembly Bugle Call", "Chinese Scenes", "Death Bed Scenes", "Drinking", "Hurried Action", "Melodramatics Scenes", "Old Slave Characters", and "Where Did You Get That Hat?". This copy has a stamp on the top from the Frelinger Music Co. in Lafayette, Indiana. Red paper cover.
The cover is scratched and smudged, and has one small tear on the front at the right edge (the first 8 pages also have a small tear in the same place). All but the front cover and the first page have been folded under at the bottom, resulting in a triangular crease. A name has been written on the front in black ink. The inside pages are yellowed, but show no signs of foxing.
