Does anybody have images of guitarists, that they will share with me, especially antique prints, engravings or lithographs produced in England from the end of the eighteenth century to about 1835?

Dr Page, I just have to say how excellent it is to have you amongst the guitarists!  I was a huge fan of your BBC programmes and  Gothic Voices work and like to think I learnt a very great deal from all that.  It so happens I too am looking into Corbetta and his links with the English court.

May I very cheekily say I'm surprised your profile suggests Coleridge died anywhere near 1935...

Hello Christopher, welcome to the Early Guitar & Vihuela website. Maybe you can fix your link, there seems to be one 'i' too many?

Regards, Jelma van Amersfoort
