The Napolitano Mascitti settled in Paris in 1704, where all nine of his published collections were issued between that year and 1739. "[He] became a figurehead of Italian instrumental music in France and was regarded as the peer of Corelli [who had been his teacher in Rome] and Albinoni... Mascitti enjoyed enormous popularity with the French public." TNG Vol. 11. p. 746. "The success of his sonatas in his own day is evidenced by their several reprints throughout the century... and the high praise for them to be found in the writings of Daquin, Le Blanc, and la Borde, among others." Newman: The Sonata in the Baroque Era, pp. 368-369. The Meyer collection, formed over a period of some 75 years, was one of the most important collections of printed music, musical autographs, and books on music of the 20th century.
