Victorian Music Covers

This is a searchable database of digital images deposited with the Visual Arts Data Service (VADS) by the University of Reading, of their Spellman Collection of Victorian Music Covers. Printed mainly using lithographic techniques, most of the items are colour-illustrated and many of them are examples of outstanding music illustrators of the period, including John Brandard and Alfred Concanen. Each record is accompanied by a detailed catalogue entry.
