Paris: Bailleux... Lyon Casteau... Bruxelle Godfrey. [1781]. Folio. Vellum-backed marbled boards with raised bands on spine. [i] (blank), [i] (frontispiece engraving of a young man playing the transverse flute), [i] (title within decorative border), [i] (publisher's catalogue), [ii] (alphabetical index to the "airs" in the volume), 5 (fundamentals of theory), 6-13 (flute method), 14 (engraving of recorder illustrating position of hands), 15-21 (recorder method), 22-25 (oboe method), [i] (blank), 27-79 (60 pieces of music of increasing difficulty, notated on two staves, arranged for two identical instruments), [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. The author is identified on the title as "M.r Hotteterre, le Romain Flute de la Chambre du Roi." The alphabetical index to the pieces ("airs") either credits the composer or the theatrical piece from which it is taken; if the original is texted, the index notes the incipit. The caption titles include some additional information but not always the incipit. Composers credited include Legat, "des deux soeurs Rivalles," Bailleux (15), Poutean, Capron, Rugi, Albanese, and Gaspard. With manuscript titling to upper board, "Recueil d'ariettes par [...]." Binding quite worn, rubbed and bumped. Leaves from p. 39 on stained at outer edge; minor dampstaining to lower margins of final leaves; ink stains to p. 9; other minor defects. . Very rare. RISM BVI p. 424 (lists two copies only, at the Staatsbibliothek Berlin and Bibliothèque nationale, Paris, both dated "c. 1765"). Lescat 596i (the same two copies, dated "ca. 1775"). Fétis IV, p. 374 (dated "vers 1765"). WorldCat lists microform only (without reference to whereabouts of original). Date according to publisher's catalogue (Johansson p. 17 and facsimile 8). The text of the three methods is the final, posthumous edition of Hotteterre's Principes de la Flute traversiere, de la Flute a bec, et de la Haut-Bois, first published as his op. 1 in 1707. Hotteterre's treatise, the earliest method for the flute, is a cornerstone of the literature.
