Songs of the University of Pennsylvania

edited by H. A. Clarke

A collection of the school songs commonly sung in the University of PA. Backed with lyrics of moving beauty and melancholy as they tell of farewells, friendship, lovely by-gotten times, cremations, what a freshman can do, celebration of the alma mater and much more. Filled with poetic feeling and heartfelt melancholy, as well as a good deal of humor and wit, these songs have been put together in this handsome edition, not only as a valuable piece of art but also as the records of a great and renowned school. The score of the songs are presented with the lyrics written below, and the names of the artists at the origin of the words and the music. 90 pages. 4.75 x 7 inches.

34 songs, 23 of which have score and lyrics written below; 11 of which are presented with only the lyrics at the end of the volume. Advertisements for printers, music, tobacco, and jewelry at end of volume.

Presumed First Edition. Published by: The Glee Club, Philadelphia, PA, 1879.
