2 separate songsters, printed recto only, mounted on a stiff piece of white cardstock. Woodcut illustration of a man & the ocean to the top of the "Life on the Ocean Wave" songster. 8-7/8" x 3-3/4" "A life on the ocean wave, a home on the rolling deep,/ the scattered waters rave, and the winds the revels keep./ Like an eagle caged I pine, on this dull unchanging shore,/ Oh! give me the flashing brine, the spray and the tempest's roar." (A Life on the Ocean Wave). "Hark to the clinking of hammers, hark to the driving of nails,/ The men are erecting a gallow, in one of her Majesty's gaols. 'Tis misnight without, its dead silence; the doom'd wretch in agony moans,/ But the clattering din of the hammer, is drowning the poor victim's groan." (The Scaffold). No institutional holdings found on OCLC (for either songster). Rare. Modest wear to paper (age-toning, soiling). Small chip to right edge of "A Life on the Ocean Wave" (no losses). An About VG example of each. N° de ref. de la librería 39906
