Bibliotheca Musica Bononiensis, IV/83. Bologna, 2009. 4°, 32, 44 pp. Line-cut of the Rome, 1626 edition. Many had thought this work to be lost but a copy recently surfaced at auction which Yale University Music Library was able to acquire. This facsimile edition reproduces that unique copy. Franco Pavan sketches out the exciting episodes of the appearances and disappearances of an edition that has been often cited during the centuries in the repertories and catalogues of several book collections. He also describes the main features of its important musical as well as theoretical and practical contents. Wrappers. $57
