Description: Bound compilation of sheet music with the surname Schieffelin attached. The collection was bound in Yonkers, New York, which strongly suggests a location for the owner, and digitized historical newspapers and genealogical records do show a prominent Schieffelin family in that city. Three quarters of the titles in the volume are variations, of which five were composed from various sources by Henri Herz. The collection includes a variety of publishers and locations in Europe and the United States. Where dates can be determined, they range from 1821 through the 1840s.
