Título: The Ladies Amusement or Vocal Harmony. Plate...
Año de publicación: 1741
Single sheet, 4to., copper plate illustration and text beneath, printed in red, as issued, one side untrimmed. In 1741 a series of Song sheets printed in either red or blue were issued under the heading "The Ladies Amusement or Vocal Harmony". The only reference we have been able to locate for these Songs is in a letter written by William Richard Lewis of Anglesey to the Surgeon Richard Evans on 28th October 1741: "I have had a present made of late by a Gentleman coming from London of a set of Songs done on copper plate in red and blue cost 4d a piece. They are call'd the Ladies Amusement or Vocal Harmony most of em with tunes for the flute. Mine is from plate I to VI, if they are continued I should be glad to have em." (archive.org/stream/lettersoflewisri01davi/lettersoflewisri01davi_djvu.tx). This piece is docketed on the verso in manuscript: "Song upon ye taking Carthagena April 1741 By Edward Vernon Esq vice admiral of ye blue. Uncommon rejoicing in London on this taking of Carthagena in West Indies". This rejoicing was premature as Vernon did not take Carthagena. N° de ref. de la librería 15012
