This is a history of the Paris Opera in the 18th century. Text in French. It is a 1971 facsimile of the 1884 book, "Academie Royale de Musique au XVIIIe Siecle", by Emile Campardon. (Volume 2) Shortly after Jean-Baptiste Lully took over the Academie d'Opera, founded in 1669 by Louis XIV , its name was changed to the Academie Royale de Musique, because it was obvious that Opera would not be the only type of work produced and staged. Today the organization is called the Opera National de Paris, and Opera is its main focus. The book presents a highly detailed account of the composers, musicians and works presented by the Academy in the 18th Century. This is Volume 2 only.

This is a deaccessioned library volume, officially released, but defaced (as a rule) by this library for some reason (magic marker effacement of library stamps). All the same the book is clean and serviceable.

This particular library is notorious for defacing the books that it de-accessions. It is a shame, but all the same the de-accessioning makes available volumes that are not so common on the market.

Binding - Solid with no detached or loose leaves

Interior - Similar magic marker obliteration of library name on front paste-down - discard stamp on facsimile title page - rear end-paper and paste-down have residue where library pocket and labels were removed (again by the library) ... else the book is clean throughout. There is no underlining.

Because of the library markings, our price is much lower than other copies available.
