Misc. Comments

Treatise on playing the recorder and ornamentation, published in Venice 1535. Information on the source of the scan is lacking. There are some minor differences from the Forni Facsimile Edition (based on the Bologna copy), compare f.ex. page 72 (added page numbers), nr 5 bar 5, or compare in general the "contamination" on the pages, of which there is less in the Forni/Bologna edition.
