This is an antique printing. James Welsh Pepper was born in Philadelphia in 1853, and died in the same city on July 28, 1919. He was an American music publisher and musical instrument maker. In 1876, Pepper founded a publishing house in his home city which printed music tutorial books and a magazine called Musical Times, which ceased production in 1912. Additionally, Pepper produced musical instruments such as drums until 1910, the year in which J.Pepper & Son was founded. Pepper is often credited with inventing the Sousaphone around the year 1893, although there have been some disputes to this claim. In addition to publishing achievements, Pepper also made history in instrument manufacturing in 1893, when according to John Phillip Sousa, Pepper manufactured the first sousaphone. In Sousa's words, the Sousaphone received its name through the suggestion made by me to J. Pepper relative to constructing a bass instrument in which the bell would turn upwards and be adjustable for concert purposes.
He built one and, grateful to me for the suggestion, called it a Sousaphone. It was immediately taken up by other instrument makers... From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The item "1905 Vintage Issue J.
