19th century (mostly) German piano music, including Mozart, etc.. (Notebooks)


Collection of three piano notebooks. Mostly, they are short sections of works for personal playing, but there are several extended works. I really like the delightful 19th century typography, especially with several of the title pages.

The works are mostly German, with the stamps of many German music dealers on the title pages (I found one Italian work, and one American). Many of the works include accompanying vocals.

The pages are mostly free of annotations excepting just several works with fingerings written in.

Artists include (among many others): Mozart, Schumann, Brinley Richards, Otto Fischer, Fink, Gustav Merkel, August Schaffer, etc..

Physical Attributes -

The two brown books are in a folio size, the marbled book is more a quarto. There are many works bound into each volume. One of the brown volumes has two smaller works bound-in, along with folio sized works.
