Berlin: J.J. Hummel... avec Privil├Ęge du Roi, ├á Amsterdam au grand Magazin de Musique: [PNs 901and 842]. [1792-93]. Folio. Contemporary dark green paper boards with decorative blindstamped rules to edges, white paper panel inset to upper with titling stamped in black within decorative blindstamped border: "Klara Germont. 1794." 1f. (title with attractive scene engraved by C.C. Gla├čbach of Papageno, Tamino and snake), 1f. (table of contents: "Ouverture," "Introductio," and 25 musical numbers), 1f. (part title: "Ouverture f├╝rs Clavier oder Pianoforte von Mozart"), 3-7 (overture), [i] (blank), 64 pp. Engraved. Ensembles no. 5 and 12 (according to standard numbering, not observed here) and much of the finales from both acts are omitted; the numbering of the included scenes is adjusted and continuous. Each number has a caption title following the pattern: "[title] Aus der Zauberfl├Âte von Mozart." With printed note to head of terzetto "Nro. IV" (usually counted as no. 6), p. 17: "Liebhabern zu gefallen, welchen der Tenor Schl├╝ssel fremd ist, habe ich selbigen im Discant Schl├╝ssel ├╝bersetzt. Es verstehet sich aber, dass alles um eine Octave tiefer gesungen, oder gespielt wird" (To please amateurs unfamiliar with the tenor clef, I have transposed it into the soprano clef. It is understood, however, that everything will be sung or played an octave lower). Two stanzas (marked "2" and "3") of a most probably original poem in ink to front pastedown in German cursive (possibly in the hand of Klara Germont): "Nachtigallen im einsamen Hain/Seine s├╝├če Stimme zu h├Âren,/w├╝rde [illegible] nicht f├╝r mich seyn. Er kann Liebesges├Ąnge auch lehren./ Trost meines Lebens! /Ich lausche vergebens./So kommt noch nicht den Weeg daher. Echo, du h├Ârest tausendmahl/Meine lauten Frauenlieder,/ wiederholtest es im Widerhall!/ Wenn er kommt, O! so sags ihm wieder!/ Trost meines Lebens! / ich rufe vergebens!/ O weh! O Weh!/Mich h├Ârt er nicht, ich ihn nicht mehr." Calculations in pencil to right of poem. Boards considerably worn and partially detached, spine mostly lacking. Some soiling and staining; occasional foxing; title slightly soiled; thumbed at lower outer corners. A strong, clear impression. . An early edition. K├Âchel 6 p. 620. RISM M4792. Rare. A second, supplementary, volume containing that portion of the music not included in the initial volume was printed slightly later.
