Ottaviano Petrucci

Given the status of Ottaviano Petrucci in the history of music printing, and the long sequence of 18th- and 19th-century bibliographical and musicological studies that include his books, it is hardly surprising that he should have been assigned his fair number of ghostly issues and titles. This chapter's discussion tries to eliminate as many of these as possible from the future literature. This chapter includes lost editions among the entries in the bibliography when they were cited by reliable writers such as Fernando Colón. There are, however, other proposed editions for which this book can find little or no justification, and they have been relegated to this chapter. Apart from the special case of Paulus de Middelburgh's last title of 1523, the more obvious cases tend to fall into three different categories, which are given here.
