The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent condition, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

From the jacket blurb:

Katherine Bakeless has selected nineteen important composers from the moderns back to Rossini, Purcell and Scarlatti.  She has told intimate and fascinating stories of musical genius; its appearance in youth, its persistence, its training, its reverence for the greatest masters of all time.

Composers included in Harriette Brower's "Story-Lives of Master Musicians" have been omitted to give place to other important composers, about many of whom relatively little has been published for younger readers.
