The Listener's History of Music - Percy A. Scholes

Oxford University Press, 1963, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Good+ - in Good+ DJ. Gently faded at the spine of the DJ with some rubbing to the edges. Edges of the textblock lightly tanned. Leans slightly.

III Volumes in I. 7th Edition [1923]. From the cover: “This history of music is both readable and attractively presented, as well as being factually sound and accurate — combination of qualities which Dr. Percy Scholes as a writer upon music has made peculiarly his own. It will appeal to the concertgoer, the listener to the gramophone and radio, as well as students: and the many illustrations make it an acceptable gift book. The three volumes here bound together deal respectively — with music from the earliest tunes up to Beethoven; with the Romantic and Nationalist Schools of the Nineteenth Century; and with Twentieth Century music.”
