70/2713 [Music]. Manuscript songbook, mainly sacred works, n.pl., n.d. (±1600), (42 manuscript), (13 blank), (19 ms.), (38 blank),(25 ms.), (39 blank), (24 ms.), (16 blank) leaves, pen and ink on manuscript staves, all but two recto and verso, contemp. vellum.

- Occas. w. later annots. in pencil (sometimes identifying the composer, sometimes on the number of voices required); lacks one leaf and one leaf dam. (with loss of music). Occas. cut sl short (affecting the numbering of the pieces in the manuscript, which from no.30 onwards stop altogether); occas. trifle soiled in margins. Contents otherwise fine. Binding warped and vellum soiled.

= A very interesting and important source for late 16th and early 17th cent. European continental music, containing over 90 pieces of mostly spiritual music by some of the most famous composers of the time as well as of lesser well known or even unknown composers. Only one piece in the manuscript is dated (no.34 of the list below, by Melchior Franck, dated "13. Jul: 1627"). The manuscript is written in several different hands, which implies that it was done by various copyists. Copying music by scribes was done well into the 18th century, and was deemed more efficient and cheaper than the printing of sheetmusic. Mother copies all over Europe were used for easy and relatively swift dissemination of (parts of) music by scribes.

70/2718 Newton, A.E. (1863-1940). Lot of 7 AUTOGRAPH LETTERS SIGNED and 6 TYPESCRIPT LETTERS SIGNED "A. Edward Newton"/ "E. Edward" (1x) and "A.E.N." (3x), all to Holbrook Jackson, dated between "January 25th 1930" and "May 1. 1940", all letters 1 leaf, 2x recto and verso. - WITH three carbon copies of typescript letters by HOLBROOK JACKSON addressed to A.E. Newton.

= Alfred Edward Newton, American publisher, avid book collector and author of i.a. Amenities of Book Collecting (1918). One side of an interesting correspondence between two great bibliophiles, especially good reading for the comments by Newton on "merely arty book[s]" that have "no raison d'etre". On William Morris: "You are entirely right, in my judgment, in calling him the most splendid failure of the nineteenth century. He preached Socialism in season and out, and then made books which only people of means could buy. I have some of them; his Chaucer in white pigskin, for example. I would be willing to bet a silk hat to a box of matches that no one has ever read from beginning to end one single one of the Kelmscott Press publications (...). Of what good is the Doves Bible except to look at? And only the first page of that is not monotonous to distraction. (...) But there is no doubt whatever that William Morris more than any other one man gave a fillip to book production everywhere. (...)". Also on current affairs: the final letter opens with the line: "Why in God's name do you employ old fashion'd gentlemen to fight against the world's worst? Thank you for delightul little volume, I still remember the time when I thought you not one man but many (...)". The three letters by Holbrook Jackson (dated between April 1933 and March 1945) are all answers to Newton's letters of the time and mainly concern invitations for the joining of societies (the Trollope Society) or plans to meet/ see each other, but also on the forgeries by Thomas J. Wise exposed by Carter and Pollard in 1934.

Hij draagt zijn berijmd verhaal aan u op en nu denkt hij zeker, dat Fientje de la Mar daar erg mee ingenomen is (...). Toch is het een beetje anders. (...) Zij zal snappen, dat een Hollandse dichter die van moederszijde een Parijse grootmoeder heeft gehad, iets anders moet maken dan die boven-Moerdijkse rijmelaars die elkaar in tijdschriften ophemelen of verguizen (...).
