Product description

A History of Keyboard Literature - First Edition; First Printing
Music for the Piano and its Forerunners
by Stewart Gordon

Designed as a text for piano and keyboard literature courses, this book presents a comprehensive and accessible history of literature for all stringed keyboard instruments. The book describes and catalogues the literature, examining the basic structure and the key features of each major composition. It also outlines important schools of composition, sources of literature, trends, and influences on composers and individual compositions. Literature is presented in loose chronological order, with geography and composer as additional important components of the organizational structure. This format makes the book useful for those individuals who seek a reference guide to keyboard literature.

This copy is in very good condition though with some shelf wear. The binding is tight and there are no loose pages. The page edge has some marks but the inside, though faded is clean and unmarked. The dust jacket is torn in two places, at the top corner and the bottom spine. There are dust marks and slight surface scratches. There is a previous owner's name on the first endpaper, written in pen. The book is rare and would be of interest to collectors or academics.
