The emergence of the piano as a popular instrument for the middle classes meant that musical entertainment in the home developed at the same time as advances in printing technology, in particular the development of the process of lithography. This process meant that the attractive 'title' or 'cover' page like this one could be produced. By the second half of the 19th Century, images on front covers were in colour and took up the whole page rather than being left as small vignettes at the top.
