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

Binding rather worn; corners defective; hinges split. Occasional light foxing and soiling throughout, but generally clean.

Nineteenth-century music publishers in Naples have not been as rigorously studied and documented as those in Milan, despite the city’s importance in the musical history of Italy. The largest and most important publishing firm was Girard (later Stabilimento Musicale Partenopeo, then Teodoro Cottrau). Founded by Giuseppe Girard in 1809, succeeded by his son Bernardo in 1826, the company did exceptionally well, primarily due to their partnership with Gugliemo Cottrau. Girard had an exclusive contract with the three largest theatres in Naples, giving them rights to the works premiered there. For Neapolitan opera during this time, therefore, the editions of Girard almost certainly predate those of Lucca or Ricordi, and were the only editions for many lesser-known composers.

The present collection also includes two scores published by Fabbricatore, another important publisher in Naples that often worked in partnership with Ricordi.
