Introduction

This is intended to be a simple register of all extant and otherwise documented musical prints issued in the Australian colonies by printers and publishers mostly active before the end of 1851.

For extant items, titles are live linked to TROVE entries for catalogue records and digitised exemplars, or in a few cases to repositories whose holdings are not currently listed in TROVE.

The page also serves as a register of prints otherwise documented but for which copies are not currently known to survive.

A few words-only song prints published and sold separately are also listed here, but there appear to have been relatively few of these (compared, for instance, to the mass of song published in homeland Britain as broadsides); in the colonies most such local songs were instead published in newspapers, magazines, and occasionally books (local and UK), and these are not included here but may be found in the main checkists. British broadsides on Australian colonial subject matters (convicts, emigrants) are not included here in the absence of persuasive evidence that they actually circulated here at the time.

Prints only are included here; acccordingly, a few instances of local compositions "published" in manuscript are not included, but can be found in the main checklists. Also not included are "Published" manuscript copies of imported titles produced and sold by local music sellers, such as those sold by Francis Ellard now in the Dowling Songbook, e.g. All around my hat and The sea (Neukomm)

Where several print editions by the same or other publishers/printers use the same plates, this is noted; in some cases the later editions are reprints, in other cases the remains of an earlier print run were simply given a new titlepage/cover. At least in some cases, colonial publishers probably also imported cheap mass-produced printed editions from Britain, and merely reissued them locally under their new own titlepages.

A supplementary page, covering publications of the 1850s (printers and publishers first active between 1852 and 1860) is planned for the future. A working list of those borderline printer/publishers, first active during 1850, but who will be included in the later page is given at the foot of the page.


KEY

The entries are grouped together by printer or publisher's names, in chronological order of that person's first publication; links to further information also appear under the individual's heading.

Editions are listed under separate headings, first dated or datable prints (in chronological order), followed by undated and so far undatable prints (in alphabetical order by title).

All entries are formatted as follows: Title / composer, arranger / place, publisher or printer / date where known / notification of those prints for which "NO COPY IDENTIFIED" / any further relevant information or links to information

Australian original works (musical composition or arrangements) are shown in gold, and the entry ends with a hyperlink to the Main entry for that item in the chronological checklist; for example:

The parting / [Mary Hely] / Dublin: Ellard for Ellard, Sydney / [Sydney, December 1835] / NO COPY IDENTIFIED / see also Main entry

Colonial editions of imported musical works or arrangements are shown in black; for example:

Prince Albert's band march / Stephen Glover / Sydney: T. Rolfe, 4 Regent terrace, Hunter Street, [by May 1842] / NO COPY IDENTIFIED ...

In both cases above, no copies of the print has been identified, and the title is simply bolded.

Where a copy or copies of the print are extant and in the bibliographic record, the titles are hyperlinked to a relevant TROVE record, for example:

For an Australian work:

Echo's song / William Vincent Wallace / Sydney: Printed by J. G. Austin ...

For a local edition of an imported title:

Ellard's national country dances for 1843, no. 3 / [various] / Sydney: F. Ellard / [1843]

Titles engraved by Ellard for other printer/publishers (mostly dateable):

Francis Ellard was still being referred to in the press as a music-seller, as late as October 1851; however, in the course of insolvency proceedings which commenced in February 1847, his Music Saloon and stock were taken over by James Turner Grocott by March 1847, or slightly earlier, and in late May Ellard advertised that he was visiting Windsor in his reduced capacity as a "Pianoforte Tuner and repairer". On 11 February 1848, Ellard advertised another forthcoming tuning tour to the metropolitan hinterland (Liverpool, Campbelltown, Appin, Wollongong) but describing himself more fully as a "Music Puncher, Musical Instrument Maker, Pianoforte Tuner and Repairer". This was the first time he advertised his services as an engraver ("music puncher"); he did so again, for the last time, in September 1850, but he nevertheless probably continued to engrave music for publication by others until close to the time of his death. Titles he engraved and signed, so far identified, are listed below:


The fall of Paris and the favorite rosignol waltz / [various] / Sydney: Grocott / engraved: "F. Ellard Sydney" (? i.e. after March 1847; Ellard had almost certainly published from these same plates himself, unsigned)

The land of the west / Sydney: Grocott / see also above; Ellard signed plates that he had previously published himself unsigned, see above)
