“The Harry Von Tilzer Dance Folio” Sheet Music

Description (Brief)
This sheet music is for “The Harry Von Tilzer Dance Folio Number 5.” The sheet music was published by the Harry Von Tilzer Music Publishing Company of New York, New York around 1900. The cover advertises the folio as “containing arrangements for the piano of the latest and most popular music of the day, arranged by Alfred J. Doyle.” The red and white cover features a small photo of Harry Von Tilzer at the bottom. Folios like this contained 40 piano compositions, usually without the lyrics, at a cheaper price than buying them individually.
