[Guitar]. Carcassi, M[atteo]. New and Improved Method for the Guitar.

Boston et. al.: Oliver Ditson & Co. et. al., [1853]. First American edition(?). Quarto. Handsome woodcut frontispiece depicting the manner of holding the guitar. Original printed boards, cloth, spine.

In all likelihood a later printing of the first American edition of Carcassi's celebrated method, quite interesting to find in the original boards. Very scarce. Selch. The Legacy of Sebastian Virdung: 371 (illustrated). (#kfk261) $750
