This collection includes nearly 400 Confederate sheet music imprints which comprise approximately 40% of all sheet music titles known to have been published in the Confederacy. Most of the items were acquired as a lot from the antiquarian catalog of Goodspeed's Book Shop. The collection also contains twenty items of Confederate-related sheet music. Most do not have Rivest numbers, but about half of them have Hoogerwerf numbers.
