New. No dust jacket. 210 p. The Serenade was Herbert's second success on the Broadway stage. It was premiered at the Knickerbocker Theatre on March 16, 1897 by 'The Famous Bostonians' and enjoyed several revivals in the early 20th century. Unlike so many of the on-demand scores now available, this one comes with all the pages and the images have been thoroughly checked to make sure it is readable. The score is beautifully printed at its original size (7 x 10) on off-white stock with a quality cover. As with all PLP scores a percentage of each sale is donated to the amazing online archive of free music scores and recordings, IMSLP-Petrucci Music Library.
