PREFATORY NOTE



The "musical renaissance" movement is placing ever increasing
treasures of olden time music before us in the form of "Denkmaler"
and similar, more or less, monumental publications, edited by com-
petent musical scholars. Thus the old masters, of music are again
accessible to libraries which could not and can not acquire them in
the very costly and scarce original editions, and this remark applies
for obvious reasons to practically all American libraries.

While therefore the evolution of modern music may be fairly well
reconstructed through the medium of these modern editions of old
music, it is entirely different with the old books on music in which
there lies stored such a great wealth of historical suggestion and fact.
They are not accessible in reprint, if we except certain works by
standard authors — I mention at random Altenburg, Agricola, St.
Augustine, Bach, Blankenburgh, Boethius, Diruta, Glarean, Haw-
kins, Mattheson, Parfaict, Praetorius, Quantz, Ramos de Pareja,
Schlick, Virdung, Zacconi. Confronted by this fact, the Library of
Congress, immediately after the reorganization of the Music Division
in 1902, undertook systematically to collect the old books on music
in the original (because practically, only available) editions. In the
short space of ten years it was, of course, impossible to acquire every
rare book of moment and in some instances this was due less to
rarity than to prohibitive cost. Fortunately, a few such books
are available either in modern reprints at the Library of Con-
gress, or they found their way years ago, when prices were less
exasperating, to other American libraries, principally the Boston
Public, the New York Public and the Newberry Library of Chicago.
It would be unsafe to assume that an old book on music is not to be
found in America because it happens to be wanting here in the largest
American collection of the kind.

Possibly, if fortune favors us, certain annoying gaps in our own
collections, annoying because of the otherwise comprehensive character
of the collections, will gradually disappear. But, whether or not
fortune will so favor us, it was felt that the publication of a catalogue
of the old books on music already in the Library of Congress — prob-
ably more than a third of the entire output before 1800 — had become
advisable in the interest of musicology at home and abroad. One
point, however, should not be overlooked. It has not been the
policy of the Library of Congress to collect every or even many edi-

3

tions of a rare book, much less every known translation. The mat-
ter embodied in the edition usually decided our choice of edition.
Nor did first editions without distinguishing matter tempt us, merely
because they were Jlrst editions. Such a complete representation of
the typographical history of a book may be and is a legitimate desid-
eratum in special collections, but is not necessarily an essential in a
general collection as planned by the Library of Congress.

This catalogue is practically the work of Miss Julia Gregory of the
Catalogue Division, and, with revisions and certain modifications,
represents the catalogue cards prepared since 1902. The adoption of
the Anglo-American code of rules some years later will account for
occasional slight variations in form between earlier and later entries.
Suggestions that would naturally be offered from time to time by the
chief of the Music Division, in whose custody the books are kept,
have not materially affected the character of Miss Gregory's work.
He assumes, however, the full responsibility for the form of this
book, and for a few minor deviations from the code of "Catalogue
rules, compiled by Committees of the American Library Association
and the (British) Library Association," published 1908 with the
modifications in force in the Catalogue Division of the Library of
Congress. In case of doubt as to the meaning of a collation, etc., the
user of the Catalogue is referred to that publication.

To avoid misunderstanding, it may be stated that the entries have
as a rule been restricted to books dealing exclusively or in an essential
degree with music. Many of the latter are not shelved in the Music
Division, but elsewhere, and this accounts for classification symbols
other than M, ML and MT to be found in this catalogue. Books dealing
only incidentally with music, such as Forkel, for instance, enumerates,
have been excluded for practical reasons, though their incidental
musical matter may possess a greater scientific value than treatises
devoted exclusively to music. Finally, a subject index has been
dispensed with after mature reflection, principally because the old
books do not lend themselves satisfactorily to modern subject head-
ings, and because a really useful subject index would have involved
analytical labor of such magnitude as to be clearly out of proportion
to its usefulness for the musicological expert, the person for whom
alone it could possess a practical value. At the end of the volume
will be found an "Index to anonymous works, including references
to special contents" as compiled by me, and entries for books received
too late for insertion in the main alphabet.
