Here is a book for someone who loves the accordion, or accordeon as in the title. Entered into Congress in 1861, this is a soft cover book which is supposed to teach one how to play the accordeon without a teacher!! Plus, there are 150 tunes inside to learn which are heralded as "the Best Melodies of the Day." The book is about 9 1/2" x 6 3/4", has a paper cover which is missing a corner and stain on back cover...inside pages are okay and very readable. Play on!!!
