Presenting Mss. to a Publishing House for Publication.
Selling Outright. Royalties.
If the author and composer feel that they are not prepared to publish and handle their composition personally and to achieve success, there is always the other medium— the regular publisher of music.
Compositions to be presented to a publisher should be expertly arranged or edited, and neatly written in proper form. A brief letter should accompany your Mss., couched in terms similar to the following:
Messrs. Jones & Smith,
New York City.
Dear Sirs: Enclosed herewith please find Ms. of my
composition entitled "................," which I desire
to place with your firm on royalty. Kindly give same your attention and consideration, and if available for your catalogue, advise me and send contracts for my signature. If unavailable, return Ms. for which I enclose necessary postage.
Very truly yours,
