I have a small box of piano music books purchased by a professional horn player (who passed about 20 years ago). See some pictures at the links below. Could these be of any interest for a music library or some other place preserving historical publications? If so, which one? Any of you interested in having them? Or should I just recycle them? Some are in not-so-great status (about half of them I would not put on my piano), but all are clearly legible.

The interesting book is the Schmitz edition of the Chopin Etudes. Schmitz studied the physiology of piano playing and that edition (which I have) deals with arm and hand position and motions when playing them. Schmitz moved to San Francisco and played and taught here. I knew a couple of his students. He found jobs for Pierre Monteux and Darius Milhaud here to get them out of France before the Nazis came.

I'm afraid most of these would not be of interest for a musical library...

Some of these have been claimed, and some are still available if anybody is interested in them. But wait! There's more:

For either (some) of the old ones or these ones added today, let me know.



PS: Thanks BDB for the information, that is very interesting to hear.

Fascinating to see the red hardcover Schirmer, I sometimes see old paper covers of theirs with the price for hardbound edition listed.
