Both scores have been inscribed to the same recipient, Miss Kathleen Thompson, on the upper panel, the first “my very best wishes, Duke Ellington,” the second “Thanx.” Extremely unusual to find an Ellington inscriptions on vintage sheet-music.

Quarto. Both in original illustrated wraps. The first in aqua wraps with stylish illustration to the upper panel of the Sophisticated Lady herself in evening dress, surrounded by stars; the second two colour printed in indigo and vermilion, featuring an image of the Duke’s hands on the keyboard with a similarly sophisticated female figure behind. Just a touch rubbed, else very good.
