Manon Vocal Score (1895) with Massenet autograph
Jules Massenet, Manon.
Opéra-Comique en Cinq Actes et Six Tableaux
Vocal score (1895) with autograph music quotation
First and final revised edition vocal score containing the Fabliau (to replace the Gavotte in Act III). Original gilt wrappers, including the variant for performance without a ballet, and the very rare “Annexe A” containing the Fabliau, composed in 1894 for the great soprano Georgette Brejean-Silver. This is the final version of Manon as revised by Massenet and the most authoritative printing of the opera. Light foxing, a few pages slightly loose, otherwise a remarkable copy with the very rare original semi-hard paper wrappers. With an autograph quotation of music from the opera, signed by Massenet, on the page facing the title page. 395pp.
