I WISH I WAS IN DIXIE'S LAND. Firth, Pond & Co., New York, 1860. Sheet Music. Condition: Very Good. First Edition, second issue. Very nice example of Emmett's classic, published after the extremely rare New Orleans southern printings. "Written and Composed expressly for Bryant's Minstrels." "Arranged for the Pianoforte by W. L. Hobbs." No mention of guitar on cover. Last page shows Firth & Pond advertisement No. 1, 1860. This format has been long considered to be the first authorized edition, however some maintain that the 'first' authorized printing by Firth, Pond & Co. had no advertisements on the rear cover (see Fuld, Book of World Famous Music, and Dichter/Shapiro, Early American Sheet Music). Others have stated that the copyright date on the front cover of the 'first' authorized printing was originally and mistakenly shown as 1858 (see Christie's Sale 2011, Lot 23, 12 June 08). The precedence of the three printings has not been definitively established however the printing with the blank rear cover is generally given precedence. Previously bound in a private album old binding remnits and cords. Ink music store stamp on front cover.
