Misc. Comments

BSB has 3 librettos scanned published in 1834 and one from 1833, from Naples, Milan and Venice and the 1833 from Florence, describing Parisina as Melodramma (1833 one Melodramma) and Tragedia lirica (according to their card catalog, depending on which one you purchased, it seemed). (Also another, 1842 print. Hrm. Was the work itself revised...)
