Many thanks for your note. I'll send an email to that address, requesting a scan of the booklet. I'm assuming that you already have one done - I don't expect you to scan the whole thing just for me.
I think you'd be surprised that quite a few collectors have a renewed interest in the Maplesons, especially with the digital restoration technology that we have today. I've been experimenting with cleaning some of them up, with some very good results in some cases. My friend Ed Komara, our music librarian (you probably know him), has a great interested in the Maplesons. I bought my set when it was first issued, in 1985 - Opera News arrived with the first ad for the set, and I had a check in the mail the same day!
Stay well during this difficult time.

That site is a legacy site that’s no longer supported by NYPL, unfortunately.
Send us an email at [log in to unmask] and we’ll help you get a free scan of the booklet. In the meantime, I’ll also investigate the possibility of getting it into our Digital Collections.
Thanks for asking about this, it’s helpful to know there’s still demand for the booklet.
