Summary

From "a collection of Sheet Music emanating from about 1911 from Cawthorne and Co. Music Sellers, possibly the most important vendor of sheet music in Adelaide’s history and certainly energetic promoters of Adelaide’s cultural life. In the A.D.B. vol. 7 p. 594 entry on Charles Cawthorne, son of W.A. Cawthorne the founder, is recorded the extraordinary statement that by ‘1896 Cawthorne’s were carrying sheet music from sixty publishers from England, France and Germany’. The stickers or stamps (on numbers 1 to 23) on the sheet music offered here indicate that since then the fascination of Australians with all things American, stimulated by the visit of the American Fleet in 1908, had created a demand for American music, and Britain’s virtual monopoly on what American music was available in her empire was being circumvented by Cawthorne’s direct importation from Vandersloot. The stamps and stickers bear the ‘17 Rundle Street Adelaide’ address i.e. Cawthorne’s Building which the company leased from 1911, the music most probably purchased in the years leading up to the First World War and before 1924, and certainly introducing South Australians to some extraordinary American cover art."--Bookseller's catalogue.
