Winner’s Eureka Method for the Guitar �" Oliver Ditson Company
This is a very old and very collectable instruction book for guitar published by the Oliver Ditson company in MDCCCXCI (1891). This is not a reproduction, it is the genuine book and probably one of very few left in existence. It’s not the usual 8.5x11 but 9x12. It’s almost certainly a first and only edition. I’m sure this book is well over 100 years old and it is all in standard musical notation. It’s an interesting view of guitar pieces/songs back then and in quite nice condition. The front cover has about a 4” tear in the lower left corner (no cover material is missing)and I find a little tear on 1 page (quite small). Has no marks on or in the book. This book was bought from a man that owned a 1922 Gibson F-4 mandolin and had the Gibson catalog from back then and a book of instruction written by Lloyd Loar (neither is a reprint but I am keeping those). Let me know if you have questions about this book or need more pictures.
