A word about this collection:
This and the other antique music catalogs and books that we are listing all came from the same collector, who by all accounts was dedicated to collecting records and music ephemera throughtout his life. We never met the man, but have pieced together a portrait based on what we found when we purchased the lot. He was a prolific walker in his early days - a New York Times article from the early 1950s describes the then 18-year-old crossing the entire country on foot, beginning in the Bronx and working odd jobs along the way. In later life he often traveled by train to reach record stores, and the collection of books shows that he started in the 1950s and kept going up until his death a few years ago.
