Notes:
These band books were used by a municipal band in Wilton Junction Iowa, 1875. Most of the books are signed "Fred Maurer's Book." Presumably Mr. Maurer was the leader and/or arranger.
The donor acquired this material from his father, who bought it at an auction in Wilton Junction, Iowa.
Summary:
Nine books plus a fragment of a tenth, seemingly unrelated to the other nine. It is a set of manuscript brass band parts from July 8, 1875. Eight books offer a complete enough assortment to produce a usable performance set.
