Vintage score
A 19th century manuscript

Vintage score is loaded with history. It's the keeper of original melodies that were sometimes played for the first time centuries ago and which have come through time unchanged. It's thanks to score that we have been able to save many masterpieces pre-dating the era of audio recording from oblivion.

Vintage score can range from single scores to autographed books of complete works to choirbooks of sacred songs. All are timeless collections that never go out of fashion. They're just waiting to be placed on a music stand to once again release the semibreve, crotchet and quaver notes within them.
While some contain all of a work's staves (for example, operas), others only focus on the part played by a single instrument or sung by a given type of performer depending on their range, from bass to soprano.

Score from the opera "Madame Butterfly"
with Giacomo Puccini's autograph

Score in memory of the Titanic Hymn played at the time of the shipwreck.

Treatise of accompaniment from score on the organ or pianoforte
These old papers are true jewels worth reading…and playing! However, there's no need to be a musician to enjoy turning the pages of these musical compositions!

The audio CD turns 30

A new audio format was born in 1982 which would gradually replace vinyl: The Compact Disk or CD. It was really in 1984 that the new format started to flood the markets…that was 30 years ago! With 74 minutes of playing time (enough to hold the longest version of Beethoven's 9th symphony) and improved sound quality, the CD was miles ahead of the old "platters". The CD was originally reserved for certain musical repertory classics, but quickly became the most popular physical medium.

After three decades of loyal service, the CD still has one major advantage over digital: the jewel case, which is tangible and part and parcel of the musical work, making it a collector's item. Whether you love rock, blues or jazz, take a look at the 16,000 CDs available on Delcampe.

Argentinian knife

Damascus fixed-blade knife

For many people, the appeal of knives goes back to their childhood. It's a personal object that has multiple uses. Receiving one is a rite of passage to adulthood in many cultures.

The knife is a requirement in wilderness areas. It's the best friend of explorers and a precious tool for scouts. There's no need to be an intrepid traveller to have a passion for knives which often have their very own personality. That's why people often say a blade has a soul!

The design of knives and the materials used to make them have evolved significantly since the first ones were made in 25,000 B.C. While some knives are manufactured industrially, there are also many artisanal cutlery forges that still use traditional methods and make unique and authentic "regional" knives.
