French Music Publishers' Catalogues Of The Second Half Of The Eighteenth Century.

AB Malmö Ljustrychsanstalt: Malmö, 1955. Large Quarto. 145 facsimilies, unbound as issued (with perforated edges). Original beige buckram box. Excellent (very few pages with chipping and/or notes in margin).
A fine copy of this remarkable work which assembles French music catalogs of the eighteenth century, thus enabling an overview of the output of publishing houses during that period.

The facsimilies are accompanied by a useful companion book, also published in 1955, with information on the publishers, important works, and notable composers found in the catalogs (228 pp.; review copy in good condition).
