Spellman Collection of Victorian Sheet Music Covers
These sheet music covers, published between 1840 and 1900 primarily in the British Isles, provide a unique view into Victorian life and culture, illuminating the everyday lives of music hall artists, women, children, the royal family, and soldiers, as well as the towns and seascapes they traversed. In addition to lives and landscapes, the covers also depict Victorian sports and pastimes (e.g.,"polo"), animals, natural history, military events, and exhibitions (such as the Crystal Palace at the Great Exhibition of 1851). Browsing is available, as is an Advanced Search. Each record is accompanied by the name of the artist or lithographer, composer, writer, and date.
