Slightly worn and browned at edges; spines reinforced with tissue. Minor foxing and showthrough; bookseller's handstamps "Timbre Royal Seine," "A. Garaudé." "The French used the term 'romance' in the first half of the 18th century to denote a strophic poem recounting an ancient story of love and gallantry. Essential to the genre were the qualities of naturalness, simplicity and naivety. ...After 1830 the romance as a song type began to give way to the more dramatic mélodie. Several attempts to dramatize the romance (such as Le songe de Tartini which contains a virtuoso violin part) were unable to revitalize the genre. The most successful composers during this period were Antoine-Joseph Romagnési, Pauline Duchambge, Auguste Panseron, Loïsa Puget and Francesco Masini." Jack Sage et al in Grove Music Online.
