[Binder's Collection: E. & F. Schetter]

Description: Bound compilation of sheet music compiled by E. and F. Schetter. A blank page near the end is inscribed with "To be sent to Miss Ellen Schetter, care of Doct. Louis Schetter, Piqua, Ohio." The collection consists primarily of variations and other works based on those of other composers. The volume also contains Books 1 and 3 of Carl Czerny's L'ecole des expressions. Four works by Henri Herz are present, and source material for derivative works comes from Gaetano Donizetti, Vincenzo Bellini, and D.F.E. Auber, among others. Half of the works in this volume were published in Philadelphia, and five in New York, with the remainder in Baltimore and Boston. The publisher George Willig of Philadelphia is the most prominent in this collection, publishing five works out of twenty in the compilation.
