Twelve Canzonets for Two Voices (Publisher's Catalogue Title "Jackson's Canzonets, Opus 9" [Opus 13])

London: Longman & Broderip, n.d. [1780]. Paperback. Engraved musical score with sewn spine, small folio (12-1/4 inches [31 cm] tall), pp. 27, (28), [p. 10 and verso back cover are blanks] with publisher's catalogue used as both p. [1] and a cover sheet. Published date of 1780 from publisher's catalogue on p. [1] which credits "Longman & Broderip" as the printer and seller in title heading (ref. Krummel [Norton, 1990] p. 323 "...Lukey withdrew from the business in 1776 and the firm remained as Longman & Broderip until it's bankrupycy in 1798.") ; publisher's catalogue p. [1] also showing "Jackson's Quartetts Opus 11" (with a pub. date of 1775?) under "Vocal Music" section, thus assume this to be the 1780 (Opus 13) printing of Jackson's Twelve Canzonets. Score with tape repaired spine and gutter cracks to sewing, light soil, p. [1] with price in pencil to upper corner, trimmed close at foot but the plate mark on p. 2 is unaffected, a circular institutional and their deaccession rubber stamps to blank verso of back cover. Good. Item #2073
