[Binder's Collection: Schieffelin, Book 1]

Bound compilation of sheet music with the surname Schieffelin attached. Nearly all works in this volume are derivative works by Henri Herz, with two by Jacques Herz. The titles are largely fantasies or variations on works by other composers (including four by Gaetano Donizetti), with a particular emphasis on operas. A majority of works were published in Mayence (present-day Mainz), and some in Anvers (better known as Antwerp), Paris, Bonn, and New York. B. Schott or Fils de B. Schott published or co-published most titles, and works in this volume range in date from 1825 through 1855. The stamp of music seller C. Breusing on works throughout the volume provides insights on how the works were acquired.

Most works were published in Mayence (present-day Mainz) and Anvers (better known as Antwerp) or Leipzig, and publishers Fils de B. Schott and C.F. Peters are the most prominent in this volume.

[Binder's Collection: Columbus Public Library, Scores]

Bound compilation of sheet music for violin and piano, assembled by the Columbus Public Library (now the Columbus Metropolitan Library). This volume consists of scores and piano parts, although its contents do not overlap entirely with those of the accompanying set of violin parts. The library catalog record follows the handwritten numbering in the volume, which generally assigns numbers to titles held in common between the two volumes. Therefore, some works are described by their position relative to numbered items, such as a set of three between numbered selections 23 and 24. The volume itself heavily emphasizes "potpourris" and other arrangements of larger works, such as those by Gaetano Donizetti and Vincenzo Bellini. Charles Auguste de Bériot is prominent in this volume as both a composer and arranger. About half of the works were published in Mayence (present-day Mainz) or Offenbach (surmised from other evidence in some cases), with Fils de B. Schott as the most prominent publisher.
