Item details

Mandalay, a Fox Trot Ballad, lyrics and music by Earl Burtnett, Abe Llyman & Gus Arnheim, was © 1924, and judging by the clothes and hair style of the dandy on the cover, I’m certain that this piece of sheet music was produced hard on that date. It was probably a new and hip song when the original owner, whose name I bet was Mildred, bought it. Mildred wrote her name on the cover, probably so when she took her music to play at parties, I’m guessing that she was a party girl, she would be sure to get it back. There are two slight tears along the leading edge, and the cover is torn at the fold from the bottom to about half-way up. The music is 4 pages.

The guys who wrote this piece were quite well known, and pretty interesting guys, all were quite well known band/orchestra leaders in the 1920s and 30s. You can read all about them on line and some of their music is available on CD, see Earl Burtnett and his Biltmore Hotel (Los Angeles) Orchestra, Abe Lyman and his California Orchestra, and Gus Arnheim “From the Cocoanut Grave” and “In Hollywood“.

Because I ship from the West Coast anything too heavy for first class has to be priced as a parcel, which means that it has to be priced for coast-to-coat. If you live closer than coast-to-coast actual shipping will be less. I do try to price shipping correctly although I sometimes overestimate the weight of a box. If you end up paying more than $1.00 over actual shipping I will credit your account for the difference as soon as put your package into the mail.

I will ship internationally. If you don't see your country listed, please convo me and will gladly provide a shipping quote for your location.

If an item comes back to me marked as unclaimed for any reason, The item will be relisted without refund unless you as a buyer contact me, asking for the item to be reshipped at your own expense.


I will ship worldwide - please see the shipping quotes in our listings, or contact me if your location is not listed.

International orders that weigh 4 pounds or less (when packaged) are shipped via USPS International First Class Mail (typically 6-21 days in transit).

Items that weigh more than 4 pounds will be packaged and shipped as economically as possible. If you would like Priority Shipping (almost certainly more expensive unless the item is very heavy, but with 6-10 day delivery) please contact me and let me know.

PLEASE NOTE that any custom fees, duties (tariffs), or taxes that may be charged by your government are the sole responsibility of the buyer. Because every country has different fees, these charges are NOT included in the shipping charges in our listings. Please contact your local customs office to determine what these fees will be before making your purchase. You may also check to determine any additional fees. I comply with all laws when shipping merchandise and make the proper declarations. When merchandise reaches its destination it is subject to that locale's regulations.

When I have shipped an item on time but there is a delay in USPS delivery I can neither foresee nor be responsible for their problems, consequently I can't issue a refund while the package is in the USPS system.
