Rossini, Gioacchino (1792-1868)
Mose in Egitto: Dramma serio in tre Atti. Piano Vocal Score Breitkopf & Härtel: Leipzig, . Oblong folio. 198 pp. Marbled boards with leather spine. Spine somewhat rubbed and tips bumped. Interior shows occasional light spotting. Overall a very nice copy.
The first edition was published by Boildieu in 1822. This edition came out a year later (see Gossett No. 5, p. 395), a testimony to the popularity of the opera. Mose in Egitto, later revised by Rossini, was first performed at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples in 1818.
