FS: Musical Theme Dictionary
By Frank Adams

Someone wanted to know how to name that tune.  I have a book here titled
"The Directory Of Tunes And Musical Themes," printed 1975, 265 p.,
clothbound.  I will sell the book for $35.00 postpaid.

From the introduction: "Have you ever had a tune in your head and not
been able to identify it?  You will certainly be able to find it in this
book.  A reference work that is easy to use.  Practically every well-
known theme or musical motif from the 16th century to the present day is
to be found in these pages.  It can be used to find the composer and the
date of a popular song, to identify a theme and movement of a sonata,
symphony, or concerto, to check the opus number or key of a work you
already know ...."

We checked it out a couple of times and it works great.
