Well-preserved magazine from my lifelong collection. At age 82, I am reluctantly willing to part with quite a few books, magazines and music that I have treasured over the years.

THE ETUDE Music Magazine, April, 1938 

Features the life and achievements of the fabled composer Richard Wagner. Like other issues of this magazine, includes both music and outstanding articles. An intriguing article presents a questionnaire for self-analysis as a springboard to improvement -- "Mr. Maier's Seventy-Five Test Questions", intended for music teachers, but insightful for anyone. 

Just a sample of the music included in this issue:

-  Wagner's "Album Leaf"

-  Wagner's "Good Friday Spell"

-  W. P. Mero's "Believe Me, If All Those Endearing Young Charms" -- For the left hand alone!

-  Gladys V. Gilbert's "Humoresque"

-  Carl Wiesemann's "Menuet Reverchon"


71 clean, unmarked pages. The large size of this magazine  (measuring approximately 10 1/2 inches by 13 1/4 inches) prevented me from scanning the entire cover in a single pass, so you will see one image of approximately the top 60% of the cover and a second image of approximately the bottom 60% of the cover. 

I will be offering to sell several issues of The Etude from the 1930's, in unusually good condition for publications of this type and age. The name of the original owner (a resident of Caerlisle, Kentucky) is written neatly in ink on the front cover.

This magazine has been kept since I acquired it in a dry, smoke free home office. Clean and complete, slight signs of age and use but still in very good condition.

You take no risk in buying from me. I have been selling books since 1976, and offered my personal 100% guarantee long before guarantees for preowned items were usually thought a good idea. 

For more than 20 years I have been selling not only books, magazines and sheet music, but also various collectible, commemorative and historical items from my lifetime collections (total of about 25,000 sales) with a 100% satisfaction guarantee for every item. I have had satisfied buyers from all 50 states. If dissatisfied with the item or with my service, just notify me by e-mail for fast no-hassle correction or refund. Thank you.

NOTE:  I pack carefully and ship promptly upon recept of payment via PayPal.

Sorry but no international shipping. I will send by mail to any mailing address in the USA.
