From the collection of Italian conductor, vocal coach, and close associate of Puccini and Mascagni, Luigi Ricci (1893-1981).

Binding somewhat worn, rubbed, and bumped. Light scattered foxing; minor soiling to bottom edges.

From the first Neapolitan editions, published concurrently with those in Milan.

Music publisher B. Girard in Naples often released new operas from the north before their Neapolitan premieres, sometimes even preceding those of Ricordi or Lucca. Neapolitan editions from this time period have not been well-documented or studied, and are scarce outside of Italy.
