Offenbach: "Auf Kosten des Verfassers," [dedication dated May 1786]. First edition, and very rare, of this privately printed collection of 28 songs.

At the time of the composition of these songs, Brede was subrector and cantor at the Jacobikirche in Perleberg near Wittenberg. In 1792, he was elected cantor and music director at Stettin. In 1793 he prepared a concert where Chaldni, the "father of acoustics," played his "euphon," which consisted of glass rods of different pitches. List of subscribers on verso of fourth preliminary leaf. Very good copy from the Wittelsbach library of the dukes and kings of Bavaria. WorldCat locates no copy in North America. ❧ RISM B4302.
