Berlioz, Hector, 1803-1869  
A Treatise upon Modern Instrumentation [Traité d'instrumentation] and Orchestration...

Publisher: Boston: Elias Howe Co., No. 88 Court Street [1899 or earlier].
257, [2] p., 66 "illustrations" of music; 26.5 cm. Title continues: Containing an Exact Table of the Compass, a Detail of the Mechanism, and a Study of the Quality of Tone, and Expressive Character of Various Instruments; Accompanied by Numerous Examples in Score, from the Works of the Greatest Masters, and from some Unpublished Works of the Author. New Edition, revised, corrected, augmented by several additional chapters on Newly-invented Instruments and on the whole art of the Orchestral Conductor. By Hector Berlioz. Op. 10. Translated from the French by Mary Cowden Clarke. Latest Improved Edition. First published 1844 as Traité d'instrumentation. "His reputation grew not from his masterpieces but from a pedagogic work, The Treatise on Modern Instrumentation and Orchestration. By refusing to write pretty little ditties for the Parisian salon, Berlioz made himself the master of orchestral mass. Polemical and precise, his treatise blazed a path of technical possibility for the high noon of European music. It was closely studied by Mahler and Strauss and served as the foundation for a subsequent textbook by Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov..."
