VIOLIN: THREE NINETEENTH-CENTURY MANUSCRIPTS

Presumably England, 1829-1830. Quarto. 33 pp. + 38 pp. + 7 pp. In very good condition with crisp pages. Minor edge wear affecting only a few pages. Contemporary boards/wrappers with some light creasing and a few chips. Some bleedthrough throughout.
A group of three manuscripts for violin copied in 1829 and 1830 by a certain J. E. Negud. His hand is impressively clear and the presentation is excellently organized, making for a lovely example of an early-nineteenth century manuscript:

II. A collection of violin scales, titled by the copyist on the cover Scales + Exercises for the Violin. 38 pp. Marbled brown paper wrappers. Note on the inside reads: Copied in the winter of 1829 by J. E. Negud.

III. The overture to Boieldieu's Calife de Bagdad arranged for two violins. Primo and secondo parts, 7 pp. total. Signed J. E. Negud | 13 October 1829 at upper-right hand corner of primo part.
