Music Composed by Nobody

In 19th Century America, a fact that is not widely known is that thousands of pieces of sheet music were published. Music on every conceivable subject from the hippopotamus to free-love was published.
Strangely enough, one of the very popular things to do was to publish sheet music using fake, often comic names.
We have gathered together a few of these pieces of music and created a PDF book out of them.
