Starmer-illustrated cover featuring that distinctively early-20th-century fad and oddity, The Billiken Man with Blanche Ring oval photo inset.
In FAIR- (MINUS) with soiled covercorner edge chips/crease; vertical center crease; archival repairs to spine and edge tears; pencil name and date upper right edge of front cover; some pencil notations written inside; a previous owner apparently attached a back cover from another piece of sheet music to this one.
The words & music are complete but it's back cover is a back from another song; doesn't affect the words & music or the front cover, but it's a condition factor that bears noting.
The Billiken was originally created by Ms. Florence Pretz of Kansas City, Missouri, who patterned Billiken after Joss, the Chinese god of "things as they ought to be". Billiken was a cross between a good luck charm and cuddly mascot.
The Billiken remains a good luck charm for Saint Louis University's sports teams and always brings smiles to the faces of SLU fans.
A very nice copy for dιcor or framing as the central graphic is in good condition with minor crease.
