SINGING TIME A Child's Song Book. Music by Arthur Somervell Words and Drawings by L Leslie Brooke Elkin & Co Ltd, London This copy is complete but has become disbound as a result of repeated use. It is bumped on the extremities. there are some grubby marks especially to the r.ep. On the f.e.p there is a stylised dedication " V from A 1907". It is believed that this is a dedicated copy from the composer to Viola Tree who would have been twenty three at the time. It is not known however if she was the 'Viola' referred to on the dedication page. Sir Arthur Somervell was an English composer, and after Hubert Parry one of the most successful and influential writers of art song in the English music renaissance of the 1890s-1900s. Leonard Leslie Brooke (1862 - 1940) was a British artist and writer who was born on 24 September 1862, in Birkenhead, England. His skillful and witty illustrations in Andrew Lang's Nursery Rhyme Book (1897) established his reputation as a leading children's book illustrator of pen-and-ink line drawings and watercolors. His acclaimed works include Johnny Crow's Garden (1903), "Ring O' Roses", "The Golden Goose Book", Johnny Crow's Party (1907), Johnny Crow's New Garden (1935), "The Nursery Rhyme Book", and "Oranges and Lemons" published by Frederick Warne & Co. Brooke married Sybil Diana Brooke. They had two children, their elder son was killed in World War 1, the younger was Henry Brooke, Baron Brooke of Cumnor, who became British Home Secretary and later a peer. In Children's Reading, Lewis M. Terman and Margaret Lima recommended some of his picture books (such as "The Golden Goose Book", the two that feature Johnny Crow, and others), commenting that Brooke "catches the spirit of childhood with rare skill". This music score came from an extensive library amassed by Viola Tree (17 July 1884 – 15 November 1938) She was an English actress, singer, playwright and author. Daughter of the actor Herbert Beerbohm Tree, she made many of her early appearances with his company at His Majesty's Theatre. Later she appeared in opera, variety, straight theatre and film. Tree was born in London, the eldest of three daughters of Herbert Beerbohm Tree and his wife, the actress Helen Maud Tree, née Holt. Her aunt was author Constance Beerbohm and an uncle was Max Beerbohm. She was educated privately in London and in Europe. Her sisters were Felicity Tree and Iris Tree. She also had seven illegitimate half-siblings, the products of her father's many infidelities, among them the director Carol Reed and Peter Reed, whose son became the actor Oliver Reed. It is believed that after her death the music collection came into the posession of her younger sister Lady Felicity Cory-Wright (née Felicity Constance Tree: 1895 – 1978) She was an English baronetess, the daughter of the actor Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree and his wife, the actress Helen Maud Holt. She was the sister of Viola Tree and Iris Tree, and the niece of author Constance Beerbohm, caricaturist and parodist Max Beerbohm, and the engineer and explorer Julius Beerbohm. This is just one of many music scores from this collection that I will be selling on this site. Ref Y4. N° de ref. de la librería 007905
