The British Library has put the entire London manuscript of Weiss online for viewing and also download. It's a very high-quality scan:

Have you succeeded in downloading it Rob?

It's failed three times for me ... as it happens I already have the complete scan from a few years ago so no real problem, but this new one is cropped in a more elegant manner. Purely aesthetic improvement of course but it would be nice to "upgrade".

I haven't tried, Mark. I was going to do it this evening. I'll let you know if I succeed.

Here's a source I stumbled onto one day,


Link failed. I guess it's not allowed here.

Google, "Igor Varfolomeev's site about lute and guitar music."

The British Library source does indeed have an issue with downloading. I'm informed that knowledgeable minds are set to the task!
