The craft of bibliography has a long and distinguished history in its own right. The methodological studies of Ronald McKerrow, Fredson Bowers, Thomas Tanselle, and Don Krummel, among others have developed a corpus of procedures, both for analyzing the printed book and for laying out the results of that analysis. This corpus is generally accepted among bibliographical scholars, and one departs from it at one's peril, not merely because it is generally accepted, but also because it is the result of long and careful thought and testing. However, music printing and publishing is in some ways a special case; music printing in 16th-century Italy raises even more particular issues; and the output of Ottaviano Petrucci produces further problems, whichever detailed variation of the general approach one adopts. The function of this chapter is to discuss some of these problems.
