New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1883.
Small 8vo. Original green bevel-edged cloth with gilt medallion. xiv, 423pp. Top edge gilt. Very good. Almost, but not quite, a "Near fine," as it's tight and bright and handsome, with just the slightest hint of edgewear. A handsome first edition of this scarce overview. Pencilled 1884 ownership signature on inner flyleaf -- but more recently from the collection of conductor and musicologist Paul Clinton Echols (1954-94). A superb copy. more information
