Catalogue of the Rischel & Birket-Smith Collection of Guitar Music in The Royal Library of Copenhagen Compiled by Jytte Torpp Larsson & edited by Peter Danner Softbound 263 pages $44.95. Have you ever wondered who were the 1st edition publishers for the classical guitar virtuosos of the 19th century ? This book is one of the very few that elucidates that information. Not only are there published works, but hand-written manuscripts as well. In some cases received from the virtuosos themselves in the case of Napoleon Coste. This collection has been the well from which many of the Chantrelle & Tecla facsimile editions were drawn.
Below is a photo of the hardbound edition, now out of print. A photo of the softbound cover will be shown soon.
