1 Rimsky-Korsakov, Nikolay. Edited by Maximilian Steinberg. English translation by Edward Agate. PRINCIPLES OF ORCHESTRATION. WITH MUSICAL EXAMPLES DRAWN FROM HIS OWN WORKS. IN TWO VOLUMES BOUND AS ONE.
Dover, New York, (1964). 
152 pp + 333 pp, + appendix, large 8vo (9 3/16" H), soft cover. Musical examples. "...a music classic, perhaps the only book on classical orchestration written by a major composer. In it, the composer aims to provide the reader with the fundamen tal principles of modern orchestration from the standpoint of brilliance and imagination, and he devotes considerable space to the study of tonal resonance and orchestral combination. In his course, he demonstrates such things as how to pr o d u c e a g ood-sounding chord of certain tone-quality, uniformly distributed; how to detach a melody from its harmonic setting; correct progression of parts; and other similar problems...Immediately following the text are some 333 pages of musi ca l ex am pl e s d ra wn from...(Rimsky-Korsakov's) works." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - light edge wear. Very Good+
