items for sale

Sometimes I buy larger manuscript or score collections with my only interest in a few specific items. That leaves other items over and in some cases these leftovers are interesting, rare or precious documents, but nevertheless don't fit to my research and collections. Then I would like to find a better home for these items and sell them here. If you are interested in any of these items, please send me a message via my contact page.
