Misc. Notes Original images: 300dpi, color jpg files approx. 3075 by 3800 pixels. Editing: re-sampled to 600dpi, converted to black and white tif files, de-skewed, and set uniform margins.
RISM 464000532 Possibly autograph score, as claimed by RISM. (See act 1, p.167. Raff is known for having had extremely neat manuscripts; that page seems a slight exception - unlike the usual autograph where that page would of course be much neater than the average page...)
