On offer is a remarkable, extensive 19th Century manuscript archive of handwritten music collected, written and compiled by British composer John Lang renowned for his composition "Joy and Peace". Some later items in the group were likely added by his son James and daughter Emily. There are hundreds [the pile is about 3 inches thick] of handwritten and printed pages of classical music with most of the pages are arrangments done by Lang of classical pieces by Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven among others. There are many pages of Beethoven's Egmont and a handwritten arrangement of Don Juan. There are a few original compositions of John Lang and I noticed a short signed piece by Arthur David Freedman a composer from Minnesota, which is from 1921 [much newer than the rest]. The majority of this work was done in the early 1800s; there are a couple from the 1870s and the 1921 work of Freedman. The condition varies, there is foxing, chipping and some staining and there could be a few missing pages. Overall better than Fair.
