Folio, 18 sets of sheet music, 16 are 3pp, one is 5pp, and one is 7pp. Full dark red velvet over flexible boards, upper cover lettered in gold and blind. "During 1884 and 1886 Honolulu bandmaster Henry Berger had a collection of sheet music published. With the exception of 'Aloha Oe' by Princess Liliuokalani, the pieces were his own compositions. Each was published separately with an identical pictorial title cover featuring a circular vignette of Diamond Head framed by palm trees. At the right of the scene is a list of songs in the collection, with the title of the composition within underlined" - Forbes. Though Forbes notes that copies of this work in the original binding vary from eighteen to thirty selections, having been issued over several years, the present copy has 18 pieces and other copies have been noted with 13 or 14 songs.
