||History of Music
It is obvious that this was originally published in German, but it is not clear -what- the original (of which this is the translation) was - my guess would be the series of books called "Illustrierte Musikgeschichte", since this series is also a series of Illustrated Portraits of Composers and Musicians. If anyone has access to the German "Illustrierte Musikgeschichte" by Emil Naumann and enough German to compare that to this (some other volumes of this series are available at libraries and perhaps digitally scanned also) then that might clear this up, and in that case this page could be moved there- or to the original, wherever it is. - Schissel
