Sorry for the noise, but there was a typo in my code example below. Fixed now for
whoever may find this helpful.

I am very interested in this question as well, and haven't seen a solution posted
yet (or in any of the documentation/snippets). So I am shamelessly reactivating
the thread.
This is what I use for the \paper section in a score that has title page only (no notes) on the first page, starts page numbers with "1" at the foot of the page on the first page of music, and prints a tagline with no page number at the foot of the last page:

[snip a lot of code]
    oddFooterMarkup = \markup \fill-line { \column {
        \bold \fontsize #2
        \on-the-fly #not-last-page \on-the-fly #not-first-page \fromproperty #'page:page-number-string
        \on-the-fly #last-page \fromproperty #'header:tagline
    } }
    evenFooterMarkup = \markup \fill-line { \column {
        \bold \fontsize #2
        \on-the-fly #not-last-page \on-the-fly #not-first-page \fromproperty #'page:page-number-string
        \on-the-fly #last-page \fromproperty #'header:tagline
    } }

I'd forgotten about (did I ever know about??) the "\on-the-fly #not-first-page" code. I
applied it to my situation and it did what I wanted: remove the header from the first
page (my score has no title page).

This produces the desired result:

\version "2.13.14"
#(set-default-paper-size "letter")
\header {
  title = "Title"
  oddHeaderMarkup = \markup \fill-line {
    " "
    \on-the-fly #not-first-page \fromproperty #'header:title
    \on-the-fly #not-first-page \on-the-fly #print-page-number-check-first \fromproperty #'page:page-number-string
  evenHeaderMarkup = \markup \fill-line {
    \on-the-fly #print-page-number-check-first \fromproperty #'page:page-number-string
    \on-the-fly #not-first-page \fromproperty #'header:title
    " "
\score {
  \new Staff {
    c1 \pageBreak
    c1 \pageBreak

whereas with "\on-the-fly #not-first-page" removed the header appears above the title on the first page.

Is this in the documentation anywhere? I couldn't find it. Should this be the default
behavior of headers?

Thanks for the tip!
