About this Item

Quarto. Quarter linen with red patterned paper boards, dark red leather title label gilt to spine. 1f. (half-title), 1f. (portrait of the composer), 1f. (title), 1f. ("Personnaggi"), 1f., 179 pp. Slightly browned; light foxing to several leaves; signature to lower blank corner of title erased; previous owner's name to front pastedown. First Edition, second issue of the second version, blindstamped March 1925. Hopkinson 11B(a). Schickerling 88.E.2. "As early as La bohème (1896) Puccini had shown a gift for robust comedy. In Gianni Schicchi this style appears refined and concentrated. Verbal inflection here is as pointed as in Verdi's Falstaff; but the organization remains based on recurrent orchestral motifs, mostly sharp and piquant, often lacking precise associations but always sure in their theatrical effect." Gabriella Biagi Ravenni and Michele Girardi in Grove Music Online. Bookseller Inventory # 21066
