"Since this songster was issued at about the time the firm moved, it is possible that it had been printed at the former address and the wrappers put on at the latter. ... The preface is signed O. J. V. (O. J. Victor), and is dated October, 1862. ... Later editions carry a copyright date of 1863."--Johannsen, A. House of Beadle and Adams and its dime and nickel novels, volume 1, page 403, no. 3.
