USD Digital Library of South Dakota Adds Unique Music Catalogs from the Mahoney Music Collection

University of South Dakota Archives and Special Collections has announced the addition of two unique assortments of material from the Mahoney Music Collection to the Digital Library of South Dakota.

These collections include 30 illustrated catalogs of the famed Lyon & Healy brokers and harp makers and 13 treatises from violin masters before 1850. The catalogs, ranging in date from 1890-1940, include rich descriptions and illustrations of both rare and modern violins, violas, and violoncellos, as well as the harps for which the company would become most well-known. The treatises include Leopold Mozart's 1756 treatise, as well as treatises by Francesco Geminiani, Carl Flesch, Ivan Galamian.

View both collections on the Digital Library of South Dakota.

The Mahoney Music Collection contains more than 4,800 books, magazines, pamphlets, and ephemera documenting the history, craftsmanship, and playing of stringed instruments. The collection contains a particularly comprehensive assortment of books about violins and the violin family instruments. The collection was gifted the collection to the University of South Dakota in June 2006 by John P. and Barbara Mahoney, who continue to add new materials.
