What is this page about?
Music literature, as V. Duckles presents it, "refers to writings on music as opposed to musical scores." The historical bibliographies below represent early compilations (published prior to 1800) of theory treatises, pedagogical works, scientific essays and many other types of publications. There are also some later compilations.
