Chang Woo Gow 詹五九 Chinese Giant Signed Sheet Music “chin-chin-chow Galop”, Litho:
$192


This sale is for very rare original SIGNED SHEET MUSIC for the piece entitled “The Chin-Chin-Chang Galop”. The galop was composed by Marquis Chisolm, a musician and entertainer. The piece is dated 1865 (in print) and 1866 (in ink) and SIGNED lightly in ink at the right edge by CHANG WOO GOW, the celebrated Chinese Giant pictured on the cover. Chang brush signed his name using Chinese characters. The fabulous stone lithographed cover illustration was by Alfred Concanen (1835-1886), one of the most famous illustrators in Victorian England.

CHANG WOO GOW 詹五九 (Zhan Shichai 詹世釵) (1841-1893) was an international celebrity famed for his extraordinary height (nearly 8 feet tall). His story is well documented. See for more information on this remarkable man:

The sheet music measures 10” x 13 ¾”. It is complete and in very good condition. It is rough at the spine where it was removed from an old binder of sheet music. The publisher information at the bottom of the page has been trimmed. One interior page has a loss at the bottom corner, not affecting the text.

Please see my other sales for more 19th Century sheet music. Purchases can be combined to save on shipping.
