These rare music prints are from an 18th century British songbook titled Clio and Euterpe or British Harmony.  The series spanned three volumes and contained 600 songs.  The title page describes it as "A collection of Celebrated Songs and Cantatas by the most approved Masters". 

Both Clio and Euterpe are characters from Greek mythology - the Muses of History and Music, respectively.

Each song is complemented by vignettes featuring scenes from myths, the classics, history and landscapes.  The engravings for the music prints was done by Henry Roberts.

The series was published by John Welcker and sold in his business - the "Music and Instrument Warehouse"  - across from the Opera House in London.
