How to Understand Wagner's Ring of the Nibelung

£24.99

Product description

How to Understand Wagner's Ring of the Nibelung - Gustav Kobbe
Being a story & a descriptive analysis of the "Rhinegold", the "Valkyr", "Siegfried", and the "Dusk of the Gods". With a number of musical examples.

Sixth edition, published and printed in London by William Reeves around 1913. pp 145.
This copy was purchased from W.H. Priestley & Sons: Pianoforte & Music Sellers, of Colmore Row, Birmingham. The buyer penned his or her name in scratchy Indian ink in 1913.

Fading and stained blue cloth with gold titles to front and spine. The spine is sunned and difficult to read. Edges and corners very good, some light fraying to corners. Priestley's plate appended to the paste down. There is some wobbling to the spine but overall the structure is very sound.

Top edges in faded blue wash, fore edges rough cut, bottom edges poorly planed but these defects are amply concealed behind the overhanging boards. all pages tanned; binding good but one or two cracks inside.

The contents page is at the end of the book, along with a list of leading motives. The narrative and scores have been supplemented by learned marginal notes at the hand of the owner : the book was clearly well-used.

Kobbe was a well known American music expert in the early 20th century.

Oxfam Bookshop Market Harborough

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller. Oxfam bookshops offer a wider selection of books than most shops, from modern fiction and leisure interest to more specialist subjects, classics, and rare or collectable books. We also stock an attractive range of greetings cards and a good selection of stationery. Come and browse!

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
