132. SPOHR, LOUIS.: A Bound Colletcion of 35 String Quartets in Parts. Various Publishers and places, circa 1830-1860. 35 works in about 32 publications, all but two with title pages to the first violin part, various German publishers, bound in 4 volumes, one part per volume, circa 1860-70, spines gilt with raised bands and red labels. a bit rubbed but sound and strong, internally clean, EARL EDITIONS OF THE PARTS, a remarkable collective edition from Spohr's early continental publishers comprising almost all of his string quartet output. This span the greater part of his career, the earliest according to New Grove from 1807, the last from 1857 two years before the composer's death. New Grove lists 36 such quartets, including groups, of which 2 were unpublished. The present collection of 35 therefore includes one not in New Grove, viz: Opus 152, published by Siegel in Leipzig as his 33rd [sic] quartet, presumably in about in 1856. Most of the output was, according to NG first published in Leipzig, some few in Berlin and Offenbach and other cities, which correspond to the majority of imprints in this collection. However our collection is part printed from plates and part lithography, indicating later issues, with the lithographed plates replacing worn out metal ones; some few are designated second or new editions. The later quartets are more likely to be early or first issues however, regardless of which this is a very useful and well preserved collection. £500.00
