A complete, presentable copy of this important, scholarly work on Reformation Chorale Music. Though functional in its perfect bound blue wrappers, the book would look incredible stitch bound in leather covers! Are you up for the task? PETER MORTIMER, b. 1750 d. 1828, was an English born Moravian organist, composer, conductor, and musicologist, who spent most of his life in Germany, in the Moravian settlements of eastern Saxony. In this work on the early church modes, or Gregorian modes, he explored the reasons for their superiority over the modern modes in the realm of choral music. Mortimer established that three modes governed Reformation chorale music, the hypodorian, hypophrygian (hypoionische), and hypomixolydian modes, and that the music had to be understood harmonically in that context. Considering the paucity of examples available to him at that time, Mortimer's musicological analysis was exceptionally astute, being fundamentally sound. (Eitner VII, 74-75; Kümmerle, Encyklopädie der evangelischen Kirchenmusik (1890) II:307-8).

His friends included the composers Adolf Bernhard Marx, Gaspare Spontini and Carl Loewe, for whom he wrote the oratorio libretto Die Zerstörung von Jerusalem, set to music by Loewe in 1833. Frederick William III of Prussia rewarded Nicolai with a golden box for the same libretto. The king was one of his main supporters, giving him the Gold Medal for Art and Science. Nicolai became widely known for his writing, especially his travelogue on Italy. Nicolai corresponded with Robert Schumann and wrote several books including Der Musikfeind: Ein Nachtstück.******

Nin studied piano with Moritz Moszkowski and composition at the Schola Cantorum (where he taught from 1906 to 1908). He toured as a pianist and was known as a COMPOSER and ARRANGER of POPULAR SPANISH FOLK MUSIC. Nin was a member of the Spanish Academy and the French Legion of Honor. He was the father of Thorvald Nin, composer Joaquín Nin-Culmell, and writer Anaïs Nin with singer Rosa Culmell. In her diaries and fiction, his psychoanalytically oriented writer daughter Anaïs Nin often attempts to explain her own personality and problems by recalling how her father treated her as a child. She was also close to him off and on as an adult. Her "unexpurgated" diary volume Incest: From a Journal of Love describes an adult incestuous relationship with him. He also appears in her fiction. She describes him as an egotistical Don Juan, and she imitated him at times by being a "Doña Juana".******

    The L.D. Heater Music Company was a family owned US musical instrument company with locations in Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington. It operated from 1918 to 1984 and sold a wide range of instruments including accordions, brass instruments, wind instruments, and stringed instruments. In its early years it featured instruments mostly used by schools. Then came the SIXTIES!

    In the mid-sixties, when this catalog was published, guitars, especially electric guitars, amps, and related, were all the rage. There are bound-in fully-illustrated catalogs for GIBSON (50 pages), HARMONY (26 pages), EPIPHONE (12), and other brands that feature ELECTRIC GUITARS, ACOUSTIC GUITARS, AMPS, BANJOS, MANDOLINS, STEEL GUITARS, and related equipment such as PICK-UPS, CONTROLS, and MIKES.

    CONDITION: "Customer Use" is written on the front cover in black marker (reportedly L.D. Heater Music Company's store copy), the covers are worn at the edges and spine folds (the cloth is splitting along the rear spine fold but holding), rubbed and fraying a bit at the spine, and showing general signs of handling, but are still solid and doing their job well, Internally, there is the number 75 written in black marker on the front free-endpaper, otherwise the pages are very nice, tight bright, clean, clear and unmarked. There is a pocket on the rear pastedown that says "Use this Handy Pocket for Current Slingerland Catalog" but there is no small catalog in the pocket.

    An indispensable reference for the lover of vintage guitars in your life or soul (of course if your heart melts for that old brass or woodwind instrument there's plenty of that too!)

NOTE: COUNTRY JOE and the FISH performed at WOODSTOCK on August 17, 1969.

    KEN BABBS, a MERRY PRANKSTER, SIGNED and INSCRIBED the front cover: "Tootle - EEE - Tootle / Ken Babbs". NOTE: KEN BABBS, a MERRY PRANKSTER, ACID TEST MC, and friend of THE GRATEFUL DEAD since 1965. He was on the stage at WOODSTOCK with the DEAD when they performed on August 16, 1969. At one point during their performance they had technical difficulties. They told Babbs to grab a microphone and entertain the crowd, which he did. He was obviously dosed to the gills with LSD.

    About the Item: NEWSPAPER, 20 pages including covers. The illustrated article on the upcoming Woodstock Festival is on pages 10-11 and continues on pages 14-15. The rest of the issue contains general counterculture articles, comic art by Kim Deitch and others, ads (including an ad for the upcoming Festival on page 15), and the like.

    VERY GOOD condition, a center crease from being folded as originally sold, lightly age toned, still bright, clean and clear.

    RARE and IMPORTANT piece of AMERICAN COUNTERCULTURE HISTORY. Unique with the Signatures and Inscriptions of Ken Kesey, Barry Melton and Ken Babbs. I'm sure I will never see another such copy, and I bet you won't either!

The frame itself has some chips to the decorations, scrapes and peeling to areas of the paint, some small nicks and scratches, but remains solid and quite lovely.

    OPERA CAVALCADE - STORY OF THE METROPOLITAN. Published by The Metropolitan Opera Guild, New York, 1938.

    Doubling as an AUTOGRAPH ALBUM, the book contains SIGNATURES of 55 OPERA SINGERS collected by a fan over the OPERATIC SEASONS 1943-1948. The signatures are on opera program covers, cut pages, and clipped sheets, that have been glued on (most at the corners) to the pages and inside covers of the book. The signatures are in ink and pencil.

    On the title page the previous owner lists some of the operas he/she attended, and the dates they were performed.

    On page 63 there is a list of all the members of the "current" Metropolitan Opera Company (i.e. 1938 when this book was published). There are check marks by twenty-one of the names. Those names make up part of the 55 signatures collected in this album/book.

    Signatures include: Karin Branzell, Thelma Votipka, Edward Johnson, Bidu Sayão, Nicola Moscona, Patrice Munsel, Ezio Pinza, Rose Bampton, Frances Greer, Richard Tucker, Zinka Milanov, Lily Pons, Astrid Varnay, Florence Quartararo, and many, many more.

    The book - Opera Cavalcade: The Story of the Metropolitan, is a history of the Metropolitan Opera. It is filled with b&w photographs of stage productions and singers, and includes a nice frontispiece photograph of Edward Johnson by Steichen.

    Condition: The book is in GOOD MINUS condition, worn through at the edges and corners, with rubs, scrapes and scratches to the boards; but is solid and has a cover image that is bright and attractive. The inner pages have some age toning and foxing, and two pages have offsetting likely from a newspaper page laid in at some point; otherwise the inner pages are tight, bright, clean and clear. The signatures are mostly sharp and clear though some of the pencil signatures are fading, but even those are easily legible with only one that has faded into near illegibility, at least according to my aging eyes.

    A wonderful look at the world of Opera as it was in the mid 1940s, filled with signatures of those who were part of that world.

    A unique treasure for the lover of opera in your life or soul.

    Martin Riskin, individually and through his charitable foundation, was a major supporter of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, and classical music throughout New York City.

    Musical score, softcovers, 7x10.25 inches, 112 page score plus 8 introductory pages, including a facsimile of a program for the original 1937 production which was titled: "The Second Hurricane: A Play Opera for High School Children". (I like how "Children" was changed to "Performers" in later editions.) There is a long tradition of great composers writing operas to be performed by young performers.

    VERY GOOD condition, tight, bright, clean, clear and unmarked. A lovely copy.

    RARE with the SIGNATURE and INSCRIPTION of AARON COPLAND from 1972, and the Association to the notable NY Philharmonic supporter Martin Riskin.
