I will be listing some RARE Comic Opera Books that were put out by The University of Chicago BLACKFRIARS. These vintage softcover books consisted of a production including all the music involved for each annual production. The first picture of each auction will be some of the history of the organization and isn't necessarily in each publication. I am including the picture below for reference only! These have been stored away for 80+ years and do show signs of wear/ blemishes/ damage that vary from book to book. I will try to list some of the more obvious flaws of each one, but please remember these are very old and show their age. With that being said they are complete and ready to enjoy.......... This particular auction is for a vintage Blackfriars opera program titled "ANYBODY'S GIRL" and is the 18th Annual College Comic Opera put out in 1922. This 12 X 9.25 inch book has 62 pages filled with the content of this production; with most of it consisting of the "sheet music" from the opera. A very neat look back into the tastes of generations gone by. This has a neat art-deco looking cover. The condition of this one meets the information spelled out above including soiling, spine separation, some small tears and other minor blemishes. Overall a great addition to your collection. Please see pictures below for visual condition and
