The Names of the Authors, Composers, Publishers, and
PRESENTING, AT ONE VIEW, THE MOST COMPLETE INFOR-
TO THE MUSICAL WORLD.
NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE:
PRINTED BY AND FOR S. HODGSON, AND SOLD BY THE
BOOKSELLERS IN GENERAL,
IN presenting to the Public this COLLECTION of SONGS, the Publisher is aware that, on a transient view, it may, by some, be thought superfluous to add to the number already in circulation; yet it is presumed, on an attentive perusal, the novelty of the PLAN, as well as the choice in the selection, will not only be deemed a sufficient apology, but will likewise secure it the patronage of the Musical World.
To Professional Gentlemen, as well as to the Amateur, who may occasionally be concerned in the arrangement of Concerts, the advantage of having a collection of the most approved songs, arranged so as to convey; at one view, every information necessary to be obtained, cannot fail to be acceptable and highly useful.
As an appendage to the Piano-Forte, this little volume is peculiarly adapted. The elegance of its appearance, together with the intrinsic merit of its contents, will, it is hoped, recommend it to the protection of the British Fair, and become their companion in the hour of musical recreation.
