THIRD THOUSAND JUST PUBLISHED—“HER-
man’s Handbook of Music and Musicians,” containing concise biographies of more than 1500 composers (over 150 American authors) and 3000 musical terms. An excellent work to use in making up biographical programmes.
Mr. A. R. Parsons, New York, writes: “Having been acquainted with ‘Herman’s Handbook of Music’ for some time past, I take pleasure in commending it to students as a neat, practical, and comprehensive work for reference.”
Emil Liebling, Chicago, endorses it as follows: “There has been for some time an urgent demand for just such a work as your ‘Handbook of Music and Musicians.’ It contains in convenient shape a vast amount of valuable information, and I shall take pleasure in using and recommending it.”
The Philadelphia Ledger says: “While for exhaustive information an encyclopedia like Grove must still take precedence, the new ‘Handbook’ will fill a less important mission with equal success.”
Mathews, Music (Chicago), writes: “The strength of the little book is the presence of a number of recent names, which, having come to prominence very lately, are not found in older works.”
“Herman’s Handbook of Music,” price $1.00 (usual discount to teachers), can be ordered of any dealer, or of Th. Presser.
