(p.383) Chapter Eleven Petrucci's Technical Legacy
Ottaviano Petrucci

Stanley Boorman

Oxford University Press

The patterns of dissemination of Ottaviano Petrucci's editions and the manner in which later printers and scribes repeated and changed his reportorial decisions are important aspects of his legacy. Equally important, however, is the manner in which his technical innovations and procedures spread, in Italy and other parts of Europe. These issues are, of course, related to the larger question of printing music at all. Here, the concern is solely with technical issues. It is significant, if not surprising, that Andrea Antico printed exclusively from woodblocks. He called himself a miniator, presumably a decorator of manuscript and printed pages. Although his hand has not been identified in any manuscripts, he probably had copied manuscripts for some time before his first publication in 1510.
