Bickham’s Musical Entertainer Sheet Music Engravings

We are delighted to offer prints from this very rare work, with original copper engravings of English songs set to music by such luminaries as Handel, Purcell, Haydn, Corelli & others. Prints from this work are rarely offered, as it is now very scarce. We were fortunate recently to find a fragment in good condition. This superb series of engraved musical pieces was first published in parts of four plates each and issued fortnightly between 1737 and 1739. Each print is headed by a charming engraved vignette with scenes of contemporary life illustrative of the song, in a mature rococo style, some in the French manner after Watteau.

It is Bickham’s masterpiece & the first work of its type in England. Many more followed this initial resounding success. We are particularly pleased to present this ancient work, with music written by such great musicians as Handel & published during his lifetime. We do consider it eminently suitable for the special occasions, as there are many beautiful love songs.

Each print measures approximately 9 inches wide by 14 3/4 inches long. The paper is fine, high quality hand made chain lined paper, light creamy in color. The condition of these prints is excellent, with the paper almost entirely free of foxing. There is no descriptive text. Please inspect the image carefully, as it is very accurate. These prints are about 270 years old and represent an enchanting part of our musical heritage.
