Ottaviano Petrucci

Stanley Boorman

Oxford University Press

The three extant non-musical books printed by Petrucci (with one other that was probably not published) are also of considerable importance. Indeed, there have been many bibliographers over the last two centuries who have written as if unaware of any of the musical publications. For every writer who discussed the role of Ottaviano Petrucci in the dissemination of music, there were several others who knew of his production of the Paulina, his (indirect) contacts with the Lateran Council, or his place in the publishing history of Baldassare Castiglione's work; even more knew Paulus de Middelburgh through his incunable publications. What is certainly evident, however, is that each played a significant role in the shaping of Petrucci's career at Fossombrone. Each, therefore, deserves consideration for its place in Petrucci's professional biography.
