Signed postcard
German promotional postcard for Sousa's first European concert tour, with a portrait photograph of Sousa on the recto. Signed in full (in pencil) by Sousa on the verso and on the recto by ten members of his sixty-piece band, including the trombonist Arthur Pryor, who would become the king of ragtime composers, dated by him June 8, 1900. Very good, with one crease, a couple of band members signatures may be traced over. Famous American bandmaster and composer of some of the nation's best-loved marches, Sousa (1854-1932) made four European tours in the years 1900-1905, and finally a tour around the world in 1910-11.The infectious rhythms and brilliant scorings of his military tunes earned him the sobriquet "The March King," and in 1987 Congress passed a bill making his Stars and Stripes Forever the official march of the United States.
