Owner biography: This volume originally belonged to Margaret ‘Peggy’ Hazlitt (1770–1841), sister of the English essayist and critic William Hazlitt. Peggy died at the house of Reverend John Johns in 1841 and was buried in Liverpool, England. After the death of Johns in 1847, his wife and four of their children emigrated to Australia. Various papers of William Hazlitt and the volume of music belonging to Margaret Hazlitt accompanied them. The State Library of Victoria later acquired a William Hazlitt manuscript and one of his lectures from Miss Lydia Johns. Margaret Hazlitt's sheet music was acquired by Australian collector Stewart Symonds and donated to the Caroline Simpson Library & Research Collection.
Provenance: Stewart Symonds sheet music collection.
