La Tarantella nel Salento : played on organs and traditional instruments( )

5 editions published in 2013 in 3 languages and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The tarantella is an ecstatic folk dance from southern Italy with a long tradition extending to the present day. It actually came into being as a form of therapy following a tarantula bite: the musicians came to the patient's house, to the marketplace or church, and began playing. The victim of the bite danced to the point of total exhaustion in order to drive the spider's poison out of the body. The present CD is the result of the organist Liuwe Tamminga's longstanding preoccupation with this repertoire, notated between the 17th and 20th centuries, which has always exerted a great fascination on musicians. The special attraction of this recording lies in the fact that it combines outstanding historical organs from Apulia with a number of ;therapeutic' instruments: tambourine, castanets and triangle underline the rhythm whilst providing strong accents, and various plucked instruments such as the guitar and mandolin enter into a dialogue with the organ"--Distributor website

This work, by Kircher's regular Amsterdam publishers, represents the 1st edition of his "China Illustrata" in Latin. A subsequent unauthorized edition, in a slightly smaller format but with the same text and with artfully copied engravings, was published by Amsterdam printer Jacob van Meurs, also in 1667. When the authorized printers, Johannes Janssonius van Waesberge and Elizaeus Weyerstraten (who died shortly thereafter) were apprised of the situation they called for a meeting with Van Meurs, to be mediated by a third Amsterdam printer and attended by a notary public. At this meeting, on 27 June 1667, the aggrieved parties demanded that Van Meurs hand over the entirety of his copy of the work: all his printed copies along with his copper and woodblock plates. Further, he was to cease and desist from publishing this work again. In return Van Meurs received 3,450 florins, which basically covered the costs of his "reprint." Subsequent printings at the shop of Janssonius van Waesberge and Weyerstraten (and later with Weyerstraten's widow) used the slightly smaller engravings that Van Meurs had commissioned, though the text remained precisely the same
