Notes / Commentary:

Beginning with no. 21, the name of the title song became the name of the songster. For example, no. 21 became "The Grecian Bend Songster."

"The thirty-four Dime Song Books appear with various addresses and combinations of addresses of the publishers on title page and wrappers. As the older numbers became exhausted, they were reprinted with the publishers' then location, unless it happened that a supply of the booklets was on hand without wrappers. In the latter case, the title page may show an older address while the wrapper shows the new. Perhaps the old covers were removed and new ones put on. In some cases there seems to have been an extra supply of covers on hand, for the title page may show the new address and the cover the old."--Johannsen, A.
