Piper's Music

Paris, Editions de l'Oiseau Lyre, [1934].

Large oblong octavo, [xiv], 20 (music), [2] (colophon, verso blank) pages.

Plastic spiral-bound overlapping wood-grained card covers attractively decorated and lettered in red, white and blue, designed with rectangular slots cut in the reinforced wide leading edges of the covers (possibly with some practical purpose in mind, but probably just for the hell of it); small adhesive residue on the inside front cover; essentially a fine copy.

Number 834 of 1000 copies. Melbourne-born Louise Berta Mosson Hanson Dyer (1888-1962), patron of the arts and music publisher, established Editions de l'Oiseau Lyre in Paris in the early 1930s, after settling there in 1928. The 1981 contribution by Jim Davidson on Dyer in the 'Australian Dictionary of Biography' was followed by his major study, 'Lyrebird Rising - Louise Hanson-Dyer of Oiseau-Lyre, 1884-1962' in 1994.
