Venetian music print culture of the mid-sixteenth century is presented here through a study of the Scotto Press, one of the foremost dynastic music publishers of the Renaissance. For over a century, the house of Scotto played a pivotal role in the international book trade, publishing in a variety of fields including philosophy, medicine, religion, and music. This book examines the mercantile activities of the firm through both a historical study, which illuminates the wide world of the Venetian music printing industry, and a catalogue, which details the music editions brought out by the firm during its most productive period. A valuable reference work, this book not only enhances our understanding of the socio-economic and cultural history of Renaissance Venice, it also helps to preserve our knowledge of a vast musical repertory.
