Scratch that if you are hoping for the actual sheet music.  I went to the "Browse the Collection" tab.  Scrolled down & clicked on Box 75 - Victor Herbert 1910-1920, but it doesn't work.  Apparently the site just listed what they owned (& maybe the covers).  If you can get to Johns Hopkins University, I suppose it's useful for serious researchers, but not for the rest of us. <SIGH!>

Like a library, the Wayback Machine feature doesn't create the material, just produces what is (or in their case, was) out there.

I tend to use the most recent date available in the hopes of it containing the most information.  In this case I later checked the first posting and think the site is less useful for us than it originally appeared.

Lovers of old-time sheet music can still find the Lester S. Levy Collection of Sheet Music online even though it's no longer online at the Sheridan Libraries of Johns Hopkins University.  The Wayback Machine capture for February 10, 2013 is the last available, but can be found at https://web.archive.org/web/20130210014156/https://levysheetmusic.mse.jhu.edu/index.html

-- can you tell I'm goofing off by prowling the Dulcimer Resources: TABS/Books/websites/DVDs?
