Condition: See description


Heugel, Henry. Recueil de Planches d' Exemples et de Formules de la Nouvelle Methode de Musique inventee et developpee par Henry Heugel. Brest: Chez l'Auteur; Paris: chez Aulagnier, 1832. Large

8vo, original marbled boards, printed blue title & subscription leaves laid down on both covers.[ii], 1-24, [23-26] 25-36, [ 2 (subscription list, printed on verso only)] pp. Printed cover & title page. Spine is pershing and protected by plastic which is giving the unusual coloring during scanning of the book covers.

Author's signature authentication stamp on front cover & title page. Edges are rubbed; small snag on the title page, with no loss; some foxing; but a very remarkable survivor and an extremely rare book.

First and Only Edition. This Volume of 26 brief lessons and explanatory diagrams was produced to accompany the author's 'Nouvelle Methode pour l'Enseignement de la Musique,' which was also issued in Brest & Paris in 1832. Heugel describes himself on the title page as a 'Marchand de Musique et d'Instruments.' The hiccup in the pagination is due to the insertion of a four page signature, printed on the interior pages only (and with one recto marked '25) with a large diagram of the transposition of keys. The book was offered for 5 francs to subscribers and 6 francs to non subscribers, and the lists on the rear cover and the final leaf of text provide the names and addresses of the subscription locations in Paris & Brest. OCLC locates but a single copy of the 'Nouvelle Methode...' and none of this work.

The item is housed at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, N.Y. but there are not a single copy of this companion volume listed anywhere. Making it an exceptionally rare music book.
