I'll See You in C-u-b-a
Irving Berlin, Inc. Music Publishers, New York, 1587 Broadway, 1920, None, , , Very Good+ /
[cover, ad] 3-5 [ad] pp. [12¼ x 9¼ inches]. Artist, RS . Colors perhaps a little subdued, but the original palette is rather earthy. Spine artfully repaired with Japan paper. The ad on the verso of the cover is for "My Sahara Rose." "Ever since the U. S. A. went dry everybody's going there and I'm going too." No, not the Sahara! "I'm on my way to Cuba, . . . where wine is flowing and where dark eyed Stellas light their fellers panatellas." The song was later repurposed in the 1946 Musical Blue Skies, starring Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire. Some copies in institutional repositories but relatively scarce in trade.
