Misc. Notes:

Differs from the the original to a considerable extent, both removing and adding material. In fact there is probably less material by Geminiani here than by the anonymous editor. Most noticeable are the 24 'Gammes' (scales) for 2 violins (in a similar manner to Baillot's Methode) and the 12 duos; however some of Geminiani's 'Compositions' for violin & continuo, and a few of the 'Essempii/Exemples' are retained.
