Geo. C. Dobson & Son's Royal Banjo Tutor. A Work Expressly Designed for the Beginner
Boston: White-Smith Music Publishing Co. 1891. Oblong 8vo (8 x 11 inches). 84 pp. Four full-page illustrations of the banjo and a man holding it in position. Musical notation. Stapled as issued. A marginal chip to top of wrapper and first two leaves. b. Presumed first edition. Contains scales, chords, fingerings, and "many sparkling gems for the instrument," composed, arranged and selected by the authors "with many elegant contributions by leading banjo teachers of the country." George C. Dobson was one of the most famous performers, teachers, and manufacturers of banjos in the last quarter of the 19th century. His 'World Banjo Guide' was published the previous year, with this presumably abstracted from that. The intro states it was "prepared for 'the million'... with a view to making it not only possible, but also easy for anyone to learn to play the banjo". Though George Dobson died in 1890, he is still listed as an author, along with his son Bennie. Scarce. Not in OCLC.
