THE MARSEILLES MARCH: SUNG BY THE FRENCH ARMIES GOING TO BATTLE.
[London: John Bland], [s.n - s.l] c. 1794. - Oblong Folio. 2 sheets, verso reinforced at fold. Engraved plates with music and text for voice/keyboard accompaniment, original French with English translation. 14 1/4 x 20 1/2 inches. Printed on heavy laid paper, undated and without a watermark. Margins uncut and bit rough. Foremargin with closed tear just about reaching the plate mark. Paper toned with some spots of soiling. Still a very good handsome production. The earliest English printing according to OCLC and COPAC was printed by John Bland, a major music publisher and seller, active at 45 Holburn from about 1779 to 1794. The march was published no later than 1794 by Bland in a 4 page printing and 2 page engraving (The Bibliotheque Nationale de France has an example of this engraved version: FRBNF43245147). Thomas Holcroft (1745 - 1809) is credited with being one of the earliest translator of the march. About 1795 the Marseilles was printed by Longman and Broderip in 4 pages which included engravings. Then it appears that the Marseilles lost a bit of its novelty for the English speaking market and did not appear again until about 1805 when H. Andrews of London printed another 4 page version. Rare item. OCLC 458241211. See: Kidson, F. British Music Publishers. (London: 1900) p. 12. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
