Thesaurus Musicus: A Collection of Two, Three, and Four Part Songs, Several of Them Never Before Printed, To Which Are Added Some Choice Dialogues
John Simpson, London, 1745. Second Edition. Hardcover (Half Leather). Very Good Condition. Half calf over marbled boards, worn but intact. Lacking the front endpaper, but otherwise complete in two volumes with a separate title and pagination. The first edition, entitled Harmonia Anglicana, was published the year before in one volume - according to Fuld there is only one known copy in the Library of Congress. The interest in the two arises from the printings and revisions of the song known as "God Save the King", printed here as "A Loyal Song". The version here is in three stanzas (though a fourth is added neatly in an early hand) and includes the addition of the "George" to king (pretender to the throne "Bonnie Prince Charlie" had landed in Scotland in July 1745, making "King" alone ambiguous. Attractively printed, slight foxing and discoloration here and there, but generally clean; a bit of soiling to the end of volume 2 and a small paper tear in the margin. A few small, neat additions in an early hand. Trimmed a little close in spots, losing the last sentence of the advertisement at the base of the second title, but no other text. 77, 80pp. ref: Fuld, The Book of World-Famous Music: Classical, Popular, and Folk Music. pages 249-250. Size: Quarto (4to). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Music; Antiquarian & Rare. Inventory No: 041445. .
