Harvard University Press has partnered with De Gruyter to make available for sale worldwide virtually all in-copyright HUP books that had become unavailable since their original publication. The 2,800 titles in the “e-ditions” program can be purchased individually as PDF eBooks or as hardcover reprint (“print-on-demand”) editions via the “Available from De Gruyter” link above. They are also available to institutions in ten separate subject-area packages that reflect the entire spectrum of the Press’s catalog. More about the E-ditions Program »

With impeccable scholarship, Howard Brown lists and describes all of the volumes of instrumental music published in the sixteenth century. Because much sixteenth-century instrumental music was based on vocal scores, he supplies, wherever possible, vocal models for the instrumental intabulations. When available, modern editions of collections and individual pieces are listed. Five separate indexes (Libraries and Their Holdings; Volumes Described, Arranged by Types of Notation; Volumes Described, Arranged by Performing Medium; Index of Names; Index of First Lines and Titles) provide a complete guide to the contents of the Bibliography.
