Il Primo Libro delle Canzoni is a collection of instrumental Baroque canzonas by the Ferrarese organist and composer Girolamo Frescobaldi.
It was published in two different editions in Rome in , and re-issued with substantial revisions in Venice in Frescobaldi published intensively in the late s. His Capricci for organ were re-published in , his second book of Toccate for keyboard and his Liber secundus of motets appeared in , the two editions of the Primo Libro in , and the Arie musicali in The Fiori musicali of were published soon after the Venice edition of the canzonas.
It is not known which of the editions came first: they may have been prepared simultaneously. The two editions appear to have been intended for quite different purposes: Ferdinando II de' Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany , visited Rome in March of that year, and the Robletti partbooks are dedicated to him, apparently with the aim of securing his patronage.
The Masotti edition was prepared by Frescobaldi's Luccan pupil Bartolomeo Grassi, and was printed in score so that it could also be played on keyboard instruments. Like the other editions of the Primo Libro , it is set in movable type. The print is accurate and of particularly high quality;  : unusually for the period, close attention has been paid to the vertical alignment of the notes. The first piece in the book, Canzon Prima detta la Bonvisia , is named for Girolamo Bonvisi, cleric, who is also the dedicatee of the whole edition.
Canzona 18 is dedicated to Masotti. The content of the two editions is similar, but not identical; the Masotti score contains forty pieces, the Robletti partbooks thirty-five.
The Robletti edition contains one piece, Canzon seconda, violino over cornetto , not included in the Masotti print, but omits three of the pieces in that edition, the Canzon Prima, detta la Bonvisia , the Canzona 34, detta la Sandoninia and the Canzona 37, detta la Sardina.
The edition published in Venice by Alessandro Vincenti in is substantially different from both the Rome prints. Although dated , it may have been published in or early in Eight canzonas from the editions are omitted.
Of the works from , none was reprinted without some change; in about half of those thirty pieces the changes are relatively minor, while others were substantially rewritten.
