anticat16 
London: Longman and Broderip, [c.1792 - 1798]. Worldcat cites a copy at Harvard, with a date of [1791], but based on the extensive evidence given in Nicholas Temperley's "Bound For America: Three British Composers" (2003), the slightly later date seems more likely. [28] pages. Folio. Disbound. Some fraying at backstrip, wear to the edge of the final leaf, scattered moderate foxing, generally very good. There are pencil annotations on some songs. The verso of the final leaf prints a catalogue of Musical Publications available from Longman & Broderip. This is Jackson's Op. 3, comprising ten songs: L'Adieu / Sylvia / O'er Desert Plains / The Grove / The Inconstant / Happy Shepherd / Florella / Daphne / L'amant Fidele / The Whim. These songs were written and in some cases published by Jackson between 1778 - 1792. George K. Jackson (1745 - 1822) was a prolific British composer who migrated to America in 1796, where he was active in Philadelphia, New York and Boston. Very scarce.
