Example text

The 1955-1965 decade also represents a similar "golden age" in the production of thematic catalogues per se. Table 1, "Thematic Catalogues Used in Library of Congress Uniform Titles as of 1972," lists thirteen designated catalogues from the half-century 1900-1953 and twelve from the decade in question. The year 1965 marks another significant turning point in this recital, for it was around 1965 that automation entered the picture, and musicologists by the score fell in love with computers. As is not uncommon in amorous liaisons, the initial excitement ran high.

They include Hermann Springer on scholarly bibliography in general; Constantin Schneider on Austrian activities; Otto Erich Deutsch on cataloguing original editions of the classic masters; Friedrich Noack on musicology seminar libraries; FriIZ Zobeley on "practical problems"; Josef Schmidt- Phiseldeck on dating; Wilhelm Altmann on thematic catalogues; Robert Haas on holographs of the masters; Wilhelm Hitzig on the importance of publishers' archives; and Paul Nettl on libretti. For a recent appreciation of their significance, see Hans Lenneberg, "Dating Engraved Music: The Present State of the Art," Library Quarterly, 41 (1971): 128ff.

The best summary to date of this project is in Notes, 43 (1986): 36-37. 13. Brain Redfern's text appears in Brio, 21/1 (Spring/Summer 1984): 4-8. 14. " Falconer Madan's" Memorandum" of 1906 and other later writings that address the question are cited in my Bibliographies, p. 63 (see note 3). Indeed, the concept of the "difference of the period treated" is amply in evidence in standard music bibliographies, begilU1ing with the great catalogues of Squire and SOlU1eck at the tum of the century, and continuing through RISM (at least so far as British and American libraries are concerned-but this is another matter).
