Music Printing in Renaissance Venice

The late 1550s and 1560s was a period of unprecedented wealth for Venice and her merchants. For the book trade, the economic boom meant an increase in the number of printing establishments. At its peak toward the end of the 1960s, the industry embraced some fifty-six presses employing 500 to 600 persons. Venetian publishers, printers, and book sellers alike felt the prosperity. The larger dynastic houses of Giunti, Manuzio, Giolito, and Scotto, as well as the more modest firms of Valgrisi, Tramezzino, Guerra, Ziletti, and Bevilacqua, expanded their output. Smaller presses also became more active, averaging three or four titles per year.
