The grandson of Justus Altmiller, one of the band members who played for the surrender of Robert E. Lee, Altmiller had a particular interest in altering or combinding musical instruments, creating items like the "cocktail violin", which was a fiddle with it's top removed and replaced by cocktail glassed and then played traditionally. He used these instruments to play unconventional novelty music, performing often at the Fox Theatre in Philadelphia. Binding holes on left margin. Corners lightly worn and creased.
