GEORGE H. WILSON

Musical Criticism - Vol. II. July 1885 - July 1886

A book of newspaper clippings from various locations, addressing musical matters, and a few critiques of summer travel in the New England area. Authors of most are unknown; several early ones are signed "Fidelio."

First small clipping is titled "Ruskinís Advice to a Student" in Edinburgh in 1854 which ends: "To do as much as you can healthily and happily do each day in a well determined direction, with view to far off results, and with present employment of oneís work, is the only proper, the only essentially profitable way."
