Vintage Biography on Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

This is a charming little book I got last week from my favourite second hand bookstore.

Underneath it is Foundations of English Prose, by  A.C Ward, I mention in The Art of Letter Writing page, and a folder of 78 rpm records from the 1930s.

Here is the front cover; the colour didn’t come out too well; as you can see above, it is light brown.

The frontispiece and title page are quite delightful:

After doing some research online I found that this book must date somewhere between 1872 and the 1880s, as the publishing  company changed names at various dates and was passed down to sons and partners from the founder Sampson Low.
