Unfortunately there was no way to prevent the artifacts on the copies. Best to refer to full score for clarification of questionable measures from the scans of these parts. Tape overlaps the parts on some pages.

No.1: Later editions have title: Neue Stücke in der ersten Lage für zwei Geigen oder zweistimmigen Geigenchor.
No.3: Hindemith added a double bass part in 1961, which is included in subsequent printings of the score and parts. SW (Sämtliche Werke) reproduces both versions, the later one in an appendix.
No.4: Autograph score has the title page as a sort of subtitle: "(für weiter Fortgeschrittene. Volkommene Ausnutzung der ersten Lage in allen Streichinstrumenten)."
