Vintage song sheet music, this is “Just For Me And Mary (‘Twas A Beautiful Wedding Day.)” Published by McCarthy and Fisher Inc., New York, in 1919, it measures 9 x 12¼ inches with three pages.

“Just For Me And Mary (‘Twas A Beautiful Wedding Day)” a popular song from the beginning of the last century. Words by Grant Clarke and Howard E. Rogers with music by Leo Edwards. The cover illustration is by Andre de Takacs, an artist who did many covers from 1906 to 1919. De Takacs used lots of bold coloring in his work and was able to create both realistic images as well as pleasingly abstract ones. He was quite versatile with the “fade-away” technique, where the clothing or other portions of a subject is of the same color or pattern as the background, making the relevant portions stand out more while the rest of the figure fades into the background. Classic vintage music ephemera and collectible, from the turn of the century.
