Dear guitarists and guitar scholars,I am happy to announce that my monograph on Alphonse Meurger 'le jeune' (1791-1827) has appeared in Robert Coldwell's Digital Guitar Archive. To cite the DGA page: 'It is a fascinating history of a musician’s life in the very early 19th century along with a detailed list of 173 prints of his songs.

"Interesting James. I am no connoisseur, and was just repeating what an expert had told me. What is the reason you think it is German?"

Hello Jan and welcome to the site. Did you know there are some rather nice song arrangements by Molino?

Hi Jan

I do know about the plate number and Youre totally right. I've just now looked at some of the other works by Molino, the ones where the print look like the op 6 and I see that the printer puts his platenumber below the last bar at all of his prints. Ive always thought that the number was the printing date. I'm more used to a platenumber at the bottom of the page. Thanks for letting me now

Hi Jan. Heres the link to the sweedish site Boije Collection. Here You can find the work by Molino. In the sheet it says below every sonata in the opus number, 1795. I gues its the year of the printing  http://www.muslib.se/ebibliotek/boije/indexeng.htm.

I see that Your a historian. I myself is very fond of history, especially the 19th century, thats why I play this historical instrument. If You havnt seen the video with my duo in this site You should check it out under videos. We're called Duo Historico - guess why ;-)
