1938 French Songbooks (single songs)

In 1938, Irving Berlin, Inc. held the copyright to the Snow White tunes. In France, the sheet music was published by Salabert. Some collections included multiple musical numbers. However, these shown here only feature one individual Snow White song per book. The covers are tinted with a single-tone color. As the popularity of the film grew, additional songbook printings were made. Note the slight changes to the design layout of the Sifflez en Travaillant books.
