Summary
  • "This study of early lithographed music informs the disciplines of both print history and musicology, and has echoes in the present growth of self and desktop publishing. Alois Senefelder (1771-1834) invented lithography sometime in 1798, and it came of age during the first 30 years of the 19th century. The collection of the late Herman Baron, an antiquarian music dealer, is the basis for this author's exposition of the genre of music printing by lithography. The book also contains a catalogue, including major works published by the leading firms of the day, which is designed as the starting point for collecting, recognizing and "provenancing" early sheet music."--BLACKWELL'S.
